11-young whooping cranes are flying across Alabama as part of “Operation Migration's” effort to protect the birds from extinction.

"Operation Migration" officials say the birds haven't flown the past two days because of strong winds in the area.

The birds are currently resting in Chilton County, but officials hope to continue their flight Monday morning.

The program teaches the endangered birds a migration route by having them follow ultra-light aircraft from Wisconsin.

The group has less than 500 miles left on their journey.
