When I was growing up in Puerto Rico, I noticed a few times a year everything would get a fine coat of thick dust.  I learned that the dust was from Africa and was carried all the way across the Atlantic Ocean by the wind.  Upon hearing this I had a feeling of amazement that it could travel so far.  Have you ever been amazed by the movement of things across the earth?

Each year the Arctic Tern, a robin-sized seabird,  travels up to 20,000 miles from the Arctic to the Antarctic and back. The feat is even more remarkable because the bird almost never rests. It is constantly either in the air, diving for fish, or bringing food to its nestlings.
