On her 17th day of migration, Island Girl reached Colombia and followed the coastline route as always. This narrow corridor has been one of the main concentration points for our migrant peregrines from Chile.
Based on our data from the last five years, I would suggest that it is likely that most of the arctic peregrines from the west coast of South America pass through this corridor en route north.
Once again, if anyone from Colombia ever wanted to catch and band arctic peregines, this would be the place to establish a banding station. Anyone listening?
Island Girl is now in the northern hemisphere and is closing in on Panama. Of course, our good friend and contact there, Guido Berguido, is heading for the US at this time.
Anyone else in Panama planning to try to intercept her?
Are you out there Beni?
