Racing Towards Home

Island Girl was seriously heading home on Saturday.

She set out across the ice on Hudson Bay and migrated 602 km (374 miles), one of her longest days this season. Pretty obvious she is ready to get to her eyrie as soon as possible.

She doesn't have too far to go, only about 700 km (435 miles), before reaching her nest cliff on Baffin Island.

Island Girl roosted at 61 degrees north latitude last night. Her eyrie cliff is located at 64 degrees north.

If all goes well, she should be home in 2-3 days.

She put in for the night, apparently on the ice, about 70 km (43 miles) SW of Coats Island where she will no doubt find much prey if she needs it.

Go Island Girl!
Thanks to everyone involved with tracking her and special thanks to Bud for his great blogging. It's such a gift to us all.
