Friday in Colombia

Sorry for the late post. Been sick with a cold.

On Friday, Island Girl continued on her way through Colombia, this time veering to the south and following the bend of the continent.

She flew 205 km (127 miles) along the foothills of the Colombian Andes, migrating further inland than usual. At this point, she usually travels closer to the coast. Alex Ospina, our colleague in Colombia, writes...

"Now this Island Girl is in the most forested geographical Choco, usually there is very bad weather."

She roosted in the tropical forest, higher than normal at 623'. She slept about 31 km (19 miles) from the coast and near a major highway (Highway 40) leading to the town of Buenaventura.
