Arrival in Mexico

Here is Don's report from yesterday...

"Island Girl continued her Pacific coastal route through Guatemala yesterday and is now in Mexico, approaching the Isthmus of Tehuantepec (which represents the shortest distance between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico); that's where she will typically cross to the Gulf Coast to continue north through Mexico and then Texas."

She roosted at 1,542' on a forested ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Looks like there might have been some terracing there. She was only 4.7 miles above the Pan-American Highway and 17 miles inland.

She should be at the Gulf of Mexico sometime today.
