Jan 28th, 12019: Itís Superman!! Itís a plane! Itís a bird.

No surprise there, since thereís a hell of a lot more birds than planes or Supermans.... er, uh, Supermen.
In 1918, back when Congress actually did some work, they passed the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to protect birds from you murderers.
So 2018 marking 100 years since Congress actually did some work, National Geographic, National Audubon, BirdLife International,
and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, teamed up to promote birdie stuff.

At the Nat Geo website they posted an interactive map of bird migration in the Americas.
Down the page they let you explore the migration of the Wood Thrush, Western Tanager, White-Throated Sparrow, Magnolia Warbler,
Fork-Tailed Flycatcher, Broad-Winged Hawk, and Greater Yellowlegs.
I believe because those seven demonstrate the basic types of migrations.

What about the swallows, with or without coconuts?

Unfortunately, the article doesn't appear to cover Africa or Europe.

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and the 100 year celebration, is about migratory birds in the Americas.

Of course, African swallows are non-migratory.

Didn't your Mama tell you about all those starving Africans? Starving means they have nothing to swallow.
And Europeans eat strange things like snails, and pizza without pepperoni, so their swallows wouldn't be interesting.

Seriously, this is about migrating birds of the Americas and there many of them.
Too many to cover all, so they chose seven to show types of routes and distance.

It's totally random. Those birds have no control over what zip code they're born in.

Yeah, you could bus them, but, it's a slippery slope.
