  1. Study: Birds Fly Over 7,000 Miles, Nonstop (New York Times)
      "In 1976, the biologist Robert E. Gill Jr. came to the southern coast of Alaska to survey the birds preparing for their migrations for the winter. One species in particular, wading birds called bar-tailed godwits, puzzled him deeply. They were too fat."

      "Just as he had suspected, the bar-tailed godwits headed out over the open ocean and flew south through the Pacific. They did not stop at islands along the way. Instead, they traveled up to 7,100 miles in nine days the longest nonstop flight ever recorded. 'I was speechless,' Mr. Gill said." 05-10
