Finally Fall: Birds on the Wing – Migration: Part 3

Migrating birds can fly thousands of miles - the most extreme example is the arctic tern, which flies almost 50,00 miles each year. If birds had frequent flier miles, the arctic tern would take the cake more than any other migratory bird! This is just one of the many draw-dropping facts behind bird migration. Learners will delve even deeper into the seasonal miracle behind bird migration and how science has shaped our understanding of the phenomena.
