Goldenrod Foundation has created this nifty animated map to show how migratory birds use Plymouth Beach in Massachusetts.

Check out their interactive map showing the migratory path of some of the birds that pass through Plymouth. It is fairly amazing to see that the birds seem to fly to specific regions and towns in far flung locations. The birds then return to Plymouth after incredibly challenging flights, and may recharge before heading on to their destination, or may stay for their breeding cycle. Their resources page has lots of information and check out their Projects and grants pages as well.

How can you gather data from live wild animals who weigh less than a pound and travel tens of thousands of miles? How can that data be visualized so other people can understand? Does your community share birds with other parts of the world? What else do you share with those parts of the world? Have you got techniques for creating stunning wildlife photography? Share your ideas in the comments, and contribute your photos and video to the Make Flickr pool.
