Whenever we’re out riding in the Jeep with the top down, I am always fascinated whenever a bird flies directly overhead.
Recently, I learned how birds find their way around when they’re flying up in the air. Do you know?
How Birds Find Their Way Around
Whenever I’m looking up at a bird in flight, I am always reminded of this:
Birds find their way around using traditional roads, highways, and other landmarks.
I, and a number of zoologists, happen to find this quite remarkable.
Zoologists now believe the phrase “as the crow flies” no longer means the shortest most direct route between two points. They say it is likely that crows and other diurnal birds also choose AA-suggested routes, even though it makes their journeys longer.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
