Thread subject: Belle is home
Name Date Message
Peter 05/27/12 06:32 am Belle is back home on Martha's Vineyard, for the first time since October of 2010. How do these young birds find their way home from South America for the first time? Incredible!

Check out her route home:

-- a long stop in Haiti during which her obituary was being prepared (prematurely it turns out);

-- right over the Kennedy Space Center in Florida;

-- Cape May NJ (as Rob points out, she has never been over this part of the east coast, as her trip south in 2010 took her WAY out in the Atlantic, closer to Bermuda!;

-- right over Central Park NYC;

-- Gloucester MA, almost to NH;

-- Belle then hooked a right turn to get back to The Vineyard lickety-split.

An amazing and epic journey over completely new territory. How do they do it?

Have a good long weekend. Thank you to those who have died to protect our freedoms!
