Red knots are barely ten inches long and weigh about twenty ounces, yet each year they migrate to the southern tip of South America and back again, a journey of over 18,000 miles, often flying as many as 2,500 miles nonstop at speeds averaging between 30 and 40 miles per hour. This well illustrated book, based on a popular NOVA series on migration, describes the red knot's ability to fly so far, its extraordinary food storage capacity, and the nature of its ever-moving food supply. The methods of research into the red knot's life cycle are also described.
