Mapping Migration

Here is a great video which tracks the migration of two honey buzzards from the Netherlands to Africa. The video created by the University of Amsterdam initially tracks twelve birds, but then concentrates on two when they travel south in the Autumn of 2010. The video shows the female buzzard lose her way on the return trip, possibly due to strong winds. The video was created using real data that gave the latitude, longitude, and height above ground of each bird.
