Because the name of this albatross (CORDII) is a combination of Cordell and Hawaii, it links these two sites and reminds people that this is a bird of both places. Submitted by Bob Wilson, GFNMS volunteer.
Cordii stopped transmitting after 71 days, well beyond the expected 55-day life-span of the single AA battery. This is the second longest deployment, after the 74-day record set by Ibn-Battuta. The transmitter sensor data indicated that the voltage dropped before transmissions ceased, suggesting that the battery had been exhausted.
