Pausing in Limón, Costa Rica
Island Girl reached Limón, Costa Rica on the evening of 21 October, and is temporarily remaining in or near the city as she normally does at this stage in her migration. Presumably there's a lot of prey in this Caribbean seaport city, and the city has several large cell towers on which she likes to perch. Yesterday (22 Oct) she left the city for a few hours (to a forested area about 5 kilometers south), which is also typical, and then returned again to spend the night.
