Quest (Very) Happy At Prince Edward Point

Quest Finishes December at PEP

Quest must be having a good time at Prince Edward Point because her transmitter data display some of the closest clustering that we’ve seen since we began tracking her in 2008. In fact, many of the locations over the past two weeks have been so close together that we thought she might have finally ditched her transmitter.

There are a few data points that are spread far enough apart to show us that she’s still moving around. But one thing we can say is that she’s not moving very far. Except for a trip to Kingston on the 26th, she’s moved only a couple of miles. It looks like Quest has found a cozy place to stay for the winter, and that she’s content enough not to wander. Unless she decides to make another significant move– back to Pickering or the Lennox power station for instance– we may be in for a boring winter.

    Glad to read a Quest update and know the transmitter is still functioning! 🙂

  4. Alison Says:

    Yup, in falcon life, boring is good.

  5. Joyce Says:

    I’m happy she is content for the time being – must be a good food supply. How has her temperature recordings been? Does it look like she is protected from the elements?

    When spring comes, I’d be happy if finds a nestsite. I wouldn’t mind if she lost her transmitter and gets on with her instinctual purpose (other than wandering). It will be interesting if we can follower her at the end of February into March to see if she finally settles down.

    I wonder if she is there alone or if the male is there with her.

  7. Carol P. Says:

    Definitely boring is good. It’s great that Quest has found a good spot to spend her Winter with plenty of food. Go Quest!
