Tibbetts, an adult male, was tagged Jan. 21, 2016, by Tom McDonald near Cape Vincent, New York, where the St. Lawrence River leaves Lake Ontario — the same area where Tom tagged Chaumont, Flanders and Hardscrabble. Tibbetts shifted northwest to Amherst Island on the Canadian side of the border and moved around northeast Lake Ontario much of the winter. His last transmission on his northbound migration was March 24, 2016, near Ottawa, ON.
Tibbetts’ transmitter was funded by contributions from the public. Please consider your own financial support via Indiegogo or a direct donation via the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art, our institutional home.
