Once again, our friend and colleague in Costa Rica, Marco Saborio, has located and photographed one of our peregrine falcons in mid-migration. I've attached one of the photos, taken around this morning (local time) on a cell tower in Limon. He will send more photos when he returns to his home in San Jose.
This required substantial effort on his part (not the least of which were driving over mountain roads at night to get to Limon, or getting a phone call from me at in the morning). Well done, Marco!"
Marco was the first to ever photograph a satellite tagged migrant peregrine from South America en route to the north several years ago. He has repeated this in Costa Rica several times now.
As Don reports, this is a very difficult thing to do and takes a real commitment by Marco to accomplish this result. He has our deepest appreciation and respect for being so dedicated.
