Flight has fascinated humans since we first looked into the sky and saw birds on the wing, and no flights are more fascinating than the extraordinary migrations birds make every year. Exploring how they make their incredible travels, this overview—beautifully illustrated with colorful paintings—traces the transits of hummingbirds and ducks as well as songbirds, raptors, swifts, parrots, and even penguins and flamingos. The remarkable journeys here include those of the high-flying bar-headed geese that fly above the Himalayan Mountains, and the long-distance endurance marathons of Arctic terns that travel from pole-to-pole.
