This tiny Arctic Tern truly is a world traveler!

Over its lifetime of about 25 years, an Arctic Tern can fly a million kilometers – nearly three times the distance from the Earth to the moon.

The bird that flies farthest is the Arctic tern, an elegant white seabird. This bird also sees more daylight than any other.

 

The Arctic tern breeds on the shores of the Arctic Ocean in northern hemisphere summer. And it feeds over the oceans of the southern hemisphere half a year later – in southern hemisphere summer. So, like many birds, this bird flies great distances every year to maintain its life of endless summertime.

 

North American Arctic terns fly about 40,000 kilometers – or 24,000 miles – each year. That’s a distance about equal to the distance around the Earth.

Now, THAT'S something to squawk about!^_^
