All three birds are moving--one in rather unexpected ways:

Melanie 09/28/05 02:10 pm I think Homer needs a new name as well as a new compass. Maybe like Wrong Way Corrigan!
Marie 09/28/05 04:00 pm Well it strikes me that the two Juveniles with tracking devices just aren't moving much. Either I am missing something but bothe H and C just haven't gone far at all since August 19th
Glad to see Bluebeard is moving slightly......
karen 09/28/05 04:07 pm Marie - C made it to florida ... he seems to be on a good a good schedule ... Homer on the other hand is quite confused.
Tiger 09/28/05 04:23 pm Marie you need to click...next map!
Anne 09/28/05 04:41 pm This site is wonderful, how interesting it is to see how the birds are faring.

It makes you wonder whether it IS instinct that drives them when you see one bird taking a pretty direct route to Florida and the other going this way and that and then turning back northwards.

i suppose this is the penalty of sole migration. the young ones cannot learn from the adults and have to work it out for themselves. I suppose its the ones like poor Homer that dont make it.
Celeste 09/28/05 05:45 pm I love following their progress....thanks Karen for the reminder...
Marie 09/28/05 06:05 pm AHHHHHHHHH thanks TIGER.............can't think why I am so DUMB sometimes...DAH!!!
great tracking of these three birds and HOMER.what is wrong with him? Going North...he knows something the other birds don't know...;-)
cathy 09/28/05 10:46 pm Don't worry, Marie - the "next map" link isn't real obvious.
Madeline 09/30/05 12:42 am Poor Homer, so confussed in his direction. I have a sister-in-law who has the same problems when she drives off her block LOL

It was fun to see thier progress on the map, thanks Karen.
