An osprey born in the Detroit area has landed -- in South America.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says the osprey, named Monroe Julie, was banded with a satellite transmitter in June and started her journey on Aug. 23. Wildlife experts say that the transmitter shows she's now reached South America.
The osprey has a 7-inch antenna attached to her body. The equipment drops off in two to three years.
Monroe Julie was born on an osprey platform at the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge. An Eagle Scout built the platform. A team of biologists, veterinarians, utility workers and volunteers worked on the project.
