Quest Heats Up, Jets Between PEPBO & Mainland

Quest Feb 15-23

Quest continues her stay at the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory, with a couple of side trips northeast to the mainland. Location data have been a little spotty. Sometimes we only get one reading in a day, and that one may not be very good, so you’ll see a couple of gaps. On the positive side, the temperature sensor on her transmitter shows that she’s keeping warm as we move into the heart of winter.

The satellite images around the bird observatory are not extremely detailed, but it seems like there must be some high structure in the area (maybe a cell phone or radio tower?) It looks like there’s some kind of artificial structure nearby, but whether it provides a hunting perch for Quest is anyone’s guess. If anyone has visited the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory, drop us a line! We’d love to get more infomation about the lay of the land.

    Appreciate the update!! 🙂

    The only structure at the Point is an old inactive lighthouse. However the entire South Shore IBA is targetted by several corporations for wind turbines, both on land and offshore. The most immediate threat is to build turbines at Ostrander Point, provincial crown land adjacent to the National Wildlife Area where the Observatory is.
