Visualizing cuckoo (Old World) migration


The BBC Nature News included a story on research into cuckoo migration from the British Trust for Ornithology.  Researchers have now tracked the migration routes of at least two cuckoos from the south of England, across the Sahara to Equatorial Africa, and back – a round-trip distance of approximately 10,000 miles.  Check it out – especially the clickable maps illustrating the routes of 5 birds followed in the study.
