Pole to Pole

The Arctic Tern migrates farther than any other bird, with some flying up to 20,000 miles / 32,000 km each year. They apparently like the polar climates - they leave the Arctic in the fall, fly all the way to the Antarctic, and return to the Arctic the next spring! They could probably go farther - but the world just isn't big enough.

Terns spend most of their lives at sea, coming ashore only to breed. Their nests on the rock, sometimes lined with nothing but pebbles, may look uncomfortable, but the eggs are speckled to look like rock or stones, and this makes them hard for predators to see.
