- The story reminds me of our Pacific Golden Plovers. Aout the size of a Robin, They left Hawaii at the end of April, flew none stop to the Arctic
Circle, mated and raised theirnoffspring. When the offspring are self sufficient, the parents take off and fly back to Hawaii. Toward the end
of August, when strong enough the offspring will get airborn and with out a map or compass. the "kids" will make straight for Hawaii, although they have never been before.
Can't beat Mother Nature for unbelievable stories.
- I think this is so amazing!!!! These little guys are dropped and buried under the sand by their mother who, once the egs are laid, goes back to the sea. And if some critter doesn't eat the eggs, when they hatch, the immediately begin to crawl back to the sea. They never know their mother but they instinctively know what to do and where to go. And this happens every year and has been going on for millions of years. This is so AWESOME!!!!
