Traveling with Sisu

Our eagles from our telemetry project from a few years ago are still reporting in data. Tom Salo reports the following information today:

Sisu traveled 385 miles point to point on Tuesday. It was a fairly straight line but she certainly traveled a bit more than that. She started moving about 5:52 AM and stopped at 5:11 PM. In 11 hours 19 minutes she averaged 34 mph. However, there were some incredible bursts in there. At a number of points she was going 68-70 mph. Remarkably, she was going over 84 mph at one point. I suspect she had a good tail wind.
