Shorebirds Migrate South


  It's September, and millions of shorebirds are on the move. Most nest in high northern latitudes, such as the Arctic tundra. And a surprising number fly all the way to South America. This young Hudsonian Godwit might have hatched near Hudson Bay or in extreme northwest Canada, and it will probably winter in southeastern South America - maybe as far south as Tierra del Fuego! Go on a field trip and maybe you'll see some shorebirds. Start with your local Audubon.
