Leaving Baffin Island...

On her first day of migration, Island Girl flew almost directly south from Baffin Island and crossed the formidable Hudson Strait, a salt-water crossing of some 111 km (70 miles) on her first jump. Pretty impressive as always.

She covered 364 km (226 miles) for the day, a good start to her fall run south.

She reached the mainland and roosted on the ground in the rolling tundra of the NE Ungava Peninsula at around 1,360 feet.
