The history of discoveries in bird migration reveals the role of creativity and ingenuity in science. Through elegant and clever experiments, scientists uncover amazing capabilities that birds possess to undertake what is arguably one of the greatest natural spectacles on Earth … the massive and synchronous movement of billions of birds from one region of the globe to another. This presentation highlights several especially beautiful scientific approaches to unlocking the secrets of bird orientation, navigation, and travel.
