Sparrow King left Nicaragua and appears to be following the Pacific coast range. He migrated across El Salvador and Guatemala, and, hypothetically connecting the dots, it looks like he went right along the mountains the entire way. He flew 526 km (327 miles) over the last two days.
He is poised to enter Mexico today near the main Tapachula border crossing. The mountains in this area are beautiful, surprisingly rugged and heavily forested.
From his current location, will he repeat his classic route from last year and move NW across the isthmus of Tehuantepec and on to the Gulf of Mexico? Or will he choose a new and different route north?
