Elizabetha Tracking Slowly Up the Gulf Coast

Elizabetha is moving slowly up the tropical coastline of Mexico and taking it very easy. She migrated a mere 68 km (42 mi) yesterday and remianed close to the ocean.

She stopped off in an agricultural field near the town of Lechuguillas only 1.2 km (less than a mile) from the Gulf.

It is likely that she roosted in that small isolated tree at the edge of the field.

Remember that if you use Google Earth to check out her roosting sites that the transmitters are only accurate to +/-20 meters (60 feet in either direction) under the best conditions. We have seen them off even more in several cases.
