Arctic Terns (Sterna paradisaea) makes an incredible migration each year. These small birds log distances of more than 50,000 miles,
from pole to pole, crossing through temperate and tropical regions.

Carsten Egevang used geo-locator tags to track ten of these terns, and he shares their story.  This tour is narrated by Ari Daniel Shapiro.
