Crossing Northern Hudson Bay

On Tuesday, Island Girl completed her crossing of Hudson Bay and reached land on the western edge of  Mansell Island at the NE entrance to the Bay.

She had flown 494 km (307 miles) across the ice heading towards her home on Baffin Island.

She roosted that night right on the edge of a small tarn a bit inland from the shoreline. This site was only 53' in elevation.

Perhaps this roost was a snow free location and there was free-standing water in the tarn. Perhaps she found prey there or even took a bath.

It would be fascinating to know such details.
