This week we’ve seen big movements as all three male osprey are in full migration. The second osprey reach Cuba on 9/20 with the third bird only a few days behind. With a big front coming across the Eastern US, we expect it will speed the last bird south.
Rice crossed from Florida to Cuba in a 6 hour flight from Tavernier Key to an island near the Cuban town of Corralillo. Rice is catching up to Jett in Cuba only lagging 250km NW of Jett’s location.
Jett spent 10 days in Cuba leisurely moving SE along the island. He passed within 7km of the US installation at Guantanamo Bay before launching over the Caribbean Ocean to Haiti.
Thurston is taking a more coastal route south flying over the towns of Charleston, Savannah, and Jacksonville. He is currently near Satellite Beach, FL refueling in the intercoastal waterway.
