Whooping cranes scheduled to stop in La Salle County

Posted by wlpo on November 7, 2009

     A flock of whooping cranes will be making a stop in La Salle County as they migrate from Wisconsin to Florida. 

The rare bids are being chaperoned by Operation Migration.  Joe Duff is with the group leading them with four ultra-light aircrafts.  He says when they arrive in Somonauk depends on the weather. They spent Friday in Winnebago County near Pecatonica.

          Duff says they started on their journey October 16 and so far, are ahead of schedule.  They made a stop in La Salle County last year.  That trip took 88 days.
