Fall Migration

How birds migrate is still a mystery. Do they navigate thousands of miles by orienting themselves by the sun and stars? Do they detect and follow the longitudinal lines of earth's magnetic fields? Or do they google Mapquest?

At last, a blog containing some sincerity on this site. Like the new header, Rich. In answer to your question how do birds migrate? It's by means of a military formation known as a phalanx, wherein the lead, or "alpha" bird chirps out a code, and the "omega" birds argue among themselves what it means, roughly resembling the pattern that tourists to New York display when walking around trying to find a good restaurant.

And how about monarch butterflies..? Those delicate little wings flapping away all the way to Mexico..! And they don't even have a bird brain.

Love the new look - great banner at the top :D Don't birds just leave a trail of breadcrumbs to follow?

Things in the sky are stationary, the revolving of the planet makes it appear as if they are moving. I thought you knew that .
