No lesson about birds would be complete without a link to Cornell Lab of Ornithology. This site is like the CIA World Factbook, except it’s strictly about birds, and has nests full of pages about Migration to check out.
One of the early theories about Migration was about transmutation. Have you ever heard of birding? How about birdwatching?
Regardless of your intensity level, both are great ways for someone to get involved and observe birds wherever they live and to share the experiences and findings with others. The Audubon Society is an incredible source of information for beginner to expert birders and birdwatchers.
Birds may make some of the longest migrations, but there are many other animals that make similarly arduous journeys. National Geographic has created a resource that describes some of the most impressive migrations on the planet. After all, he was the owner of the world’s first bird observatory and a huge proponent of the study of birds.
