Rankin Migration - 02 Oct. 2009

Both Rankin birds are now well into migration – As of October 1, Blue is in Minnesota and has flown over 2000 km since September 23 and Red is in Wisconsin with over 2700 km covered since September 22. Both have flown west of the Great Lakes and based on data collected in 2008, Blue may take a circum-gulf route perhaps via Padre, and Red at this point seems destined for Florida.
The above photo of red on territory was taken by Vincent L’Herault this summer.
