On Thursday, Island Girl picked up the pace again and flew straight south. She traveled all the way across Arkansas, passing Little Rock, and then moved into Louisiana, covering 474 km (295 miles) for the day.
She eventually roosted in what looks like a tree farm, a large area of woodlot that appears to have been cultivated. She slept at just 166' elevation.
Island Girl is now heading straight south towards the Gulf of Mexico but is running several days ahead of schedule on her migration.
If she extended this same track today (Friday), she will have arrived at the coast halfway between Houston and New Orleans.
Will she do another trans-Gulf crossing again?
