8/7/2020 :: Motus Update!
Two previous updates provided new Motus detections for peregrine falcons that fledged in 2019 from the Rachel Carson State Office Building in Harrisburg.
The third falcon that fledged in 2019, White 22/BZ, had six hits. The first three detected in July of 2019 placed this falcon near Reading, PA. The second was a single detection this past November, north of Toronto, Ontario. This specific falcon was not detected again until mid-April of 2020. Remarkably, like one of its siblings, White 22/BZ was detected twice near Finca las Palmeras, Colombia! This suggests that this particular falcon traveled over 2,700 miles between Ontario and Colombia, flying over parts of Canada, the eastern United States, across the Caribbean Sea, and into South America, reaching a location near the country's Pacific Coast. Simply remarkable!!
