This remarkable peregrine, Island Girl, that we tagged in Chile six years
ago, has just begun another northbound migration towards her nest on Baffin
Island, Canada. We now have five complete years of data on her
transcontinental movements and are hoping for more.

She left her wintering area on the coast of Chile (same location every
year) a couple of days ago and, as usual, you can see her current position
based on our three signals per day via the FRG website at www.frg.org.

Pretty sure that this is a record for a satellite-tagged peregrine. Amazed
that her GPS solar powered transmitter from Microwave Telemetry has lasted
for so long.

And for all of you that have contributed to this project, and there are
many here on Tweeters, thanks again.

This would not be happening without you guys.
