    I wish they would have given a mileage estimate from this data, it's undoubtedly incredible. And was it relatively stationary for periods while nesting and raising young?

    It appears that it migrated to the same area in Colorado three times over the three year period, as there are six track lines to and from that area. I suppose that one could assume that that's where it returned to and nested during the warmer months.

    Where we used to live the Swainsons came to a rather large old tree at the rear of the property every year. We really got into studying them,especially my wife it was really an education.

    This kind of makes me wonder if the bald eagles around here travel like that (I have no clue if they migrate) , edit: I looked it up they Generally don’t And we are in the “year round” area of the map

    I guess you can go some pretty decent distances if you fly everyday

    Aren’t birds interesting

    Pretty amazing. It should be interesting to know the mileage and resting timeframes

    I had no idea!
    Of course, that’s said of me fairly often.
    Incredible!
