Following the Coast North

Island Girl flew 264 km (164 miles) north on Sunday migrating along the rich coastal desert of Chile. She was approaching the city of Iquique.

She roosted out in the desert but just north of the Rio Loja. Perfect place to hunt before dark.

Looks like she spent the night right on the ground atop a broad shoulder of a mountain that rises up off the coastal terrace. Elevation was 1,680'and it looks like she was just out of sight of the coast highway only 2.4 km (1.4 miles) below. She was just 3.4 km (2 miles) above the ocean. Perfect place for hunting when she started out this morning.
