Why Peregrines Leave the Arctic in Winter

Just in case anyone out there is wondering why Island Girl leaves Baffin Island every fall, these photographs were recently sent to me by Kanit Cotrell, another peregrine person from San Francisco and Seattle.

They were taken just a few days ago (12 October). Kanit was on her way home from Paris to Seattle and her jet flew over Baffin Island at an elevation of 38,000'.

Pretty harsh conditions and in great contrast to Island Girls current location in the tropics of Honduras!

Here is another shot of the winter coastline on Baffin Island.....

Thank you Kanit for taking the time to send these great shots. It is appreciated.
