Have you ever gone on a long trip in your car?
And wondered when will you ever get to your destination? Long trips can be boring and seem to take forever.
But, imagine, for a moment, that you are a bar-tailed godwit.
You have a long journey of 11,000 km (6800 miles).
You will fly without stopping from Alaska to New Zealand.
And guess what? You will only be 4 months old!
And guess what? You, and all your fellow fledglings, will make the journey without any adults.
And guess what else? None of you will have ever made this journey before.
The journey lasts for 8 or 9 days.
Animals across the Earth are on the move, beginning their migratory journey.
