Heading South Again...

On Tuesday, Island Girl resumed her migration after a short hiatus and covered another 399 km (248 miles).

She headed SE across Ontario, closely following her 2012 and 2013 route to the west of James Bay. This area is known for its high concentration of waterfowl at this time of year.

She flew over the tundra dotted with the lakes and streams characteristic of this treeless region.

Roosted at 544' elevation out in the open.

By the way, I just got this excellent weather site from viewer Robin Robinson. Really nice visual representation of the winds flowing across North America and beyond, especially where Island Girl is located.

Thanks Robin. Nice addition to the study.
