Onto Lake Superior

On Thursday, Island Girl once again flew just a short distance, covering only 101 km (63 miles).

She left the mainland and flew out over Lake Superior eventually landing on Michipicoten Island 15 km (9 miles) offshore.

Looks like she roosted on a forested hillside at 1.181' elevation.

She is in good position to cross the lake tomorrow.

Love reading your updates on Island Girl Bud. Great work tracking this raptor. I found it interesting that you mention she often stops in coastal Ecuador on her southbound journeys. I'm a native of Quito.

Again thanks and keep up the wonderful work you do.

Hi Tony,

Thanks for viewing and good to know that you are enjoying her migration from there in Ecuador.
I had spent several seasons studying tundra peregrine "wintering" behavior at the Santa Elena Peninsula on your coast and fell completely in love with the place. Many adventures there.
Would love to return there and see Salinas again.
