Island Girl Roosts on Isla Colon in the Caribbean

Island Girl followed the Caribbean coastline west across Panama yesterday covering 293 km (182 miles) during the day. We can't really be certain of her exact route as our information is based on only a few signals. So she may have flown straight over the open ocean or she might have followed the shoreline west.

At any rate, she arrived at the Bocas Del Toro region and slept on the northernmost of these islands, Isla Colon (obviously named after Christopher Columbus).

She roosted right above the shoreline in an area with several houses and a road.

She was approximately 32 km (20 miles) from the Costa Rican border.
