Island Girl Crossing Nicaragua

On 6 May, Island Girl covered 403 km (250 miles), and crossed all of Nicaragua, traveling from Costa Rica to Honduras, in a single day. She was putting on some speed now.

As usual, she left Costa Rica heading towards Lago Nicaragua and appears to have flown across it, as she has done in past years. She also winged her way right on past Lago Managua further to the NW.

In fact, she flew all the way into Honduras before roosting in the hills above the city of Choluteca at 562' and not far from a main road. She seems to have selected a tree on the hillside for sleeping.

No roosting in Nicaragua this season.

She was now at about 13 degrees north latitude and flying roughly WNW to cross Central America.
