Slow down in Northern Ontario

Island Girl flew only 60 km (37 miles) yesterday, slowing down across northern Ontario. We now have her roosting site locations so the transmitter is functioning better.

She slept last night among the headwaters of the Attiwapiskat River which flows east into James Bay. Looks like she may have slept on a "ridgeline" above the river valleys. This location is 120 km (75 miles) inland from James Bay and not far from the De Beers Victor Diamond mine in Canada.
