This bird is named after Charles Lindberg, the first aviator to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Submitted by Linda King.
Lindbird stopped transmitting after 65 days, well beyond the expected 55-day life-span of the single AA battery. The transmitter sensor data indicated that the voltage dropped before transmissions ceased, suggesting that the battery had been exhausted.
