Coley, our amazing avian traveler, completed his northward migration yesterday, March 20th. He fittingly arrived at Jamaica Bay on the first day of spring and was quickly reunited with his mate.
We’ll continue to keep an eye on his travels and re-acclimation to the Bay. Although there are many exciting possibilities on the horizon (eggs! chicks! summer fishing!), for now let’s all say a hearty congratulations to this amazing bird.
Below is a complete map of his journey north.
