Out There

commute

Posted in Uncategorized by Pete on February 22, 2012

You think YOU have a long commute?   This guy weighs about 25 grams (less than one ounce) and flies 18,000 miles from northern Alaska to Africa every year!  Check this out.  I seriously just can’t get over this the more I think about it.  Flying the Atlantic non-stop??  How could such a puny thing ever go into a headwind?

I’m not a birder.  At all.  But this bird apparently exists to do three things magnificently:  sing, eat bugs, and fly ridonkulous distances.  Oh tiny ball of fluff, I salute you!

(I usually post this kind of little link on facebook but I’m working in Chevak right now and the school blocks facebook.  But my blog automatically posts to FB, so ha HA!!)
