Migration map update

The "Osprey Highway" is busy indeed!
Anne 10/13/11 07:54 am Henrietta is one bold Osprey
Nancy L 10/13/11 10:27 am Thanks for that, Peter. Buck sure knows how to travel!
Celeste 10/13/11 02:32 pm Love "the" Osprey Highway!!!!!! Thanks!
Melanie 10/13/11 03:39 pm Henrietta is enough to give you grey hairs! (or feathers)
Peter 10/13/11 04:01 pm Henrietta is indeed amazing.

I would be curious for feedback on other juveniles who have flown directly from New England (Martha's Vineyard in her case) to the Bahamas I believe, and then on to Cuba, in one direct flight.

The thought of this first-time journey over open ocean boggles the mind.

It will be interesting to see her updated maps.
Melanie 10/14/11 09:26 am There have been several of Rob's birds who have made their first migration on the overseas route. I believe that one other bird actually accomplished this a few years ago. Do some poking around on the main migration page - there was one bird between 2004 & 2007 went north, followed the St. Lawrence to the Great Lakes and hung out up there until the snow started flying in Dec before making a bee-line south.

Generally the birds who do the overseas route are not so lucky and fall into the sea out of sheer exhaustion. Those have been heartbreakers, especially the young female who fell just a few miles short of Bermuda (Bahamas?). The older birds generally stick to the safer coastal route. Kids - go figure!
