National Geographic recently created this gorgeous, interactive story map that tracks the migration patterns of seven species of birds: the wood thrush, the western tanager, the white-throated sparrow, the magnolia warbler, the fork-tailed flycatcher, the broad-winged hawk, and the greater yellowlegs. Visitors have a chance to listen to a short recording of each of these birds and view an animation of each bird's migratory pattern. These short animations are accompanied by a series of short descriptions that trace each stop in the bird's migratory path. These fascinating animations are based on data from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, which incorporates data from the citizen science project eBird.
