Satellites Are Helping To Feed Tired And Hungry Birds

This spring, migrating shorebirds came across roughly 7000 acres of temporary wetland habitat to feed on during their stopover in California's Central Valley.

The BirdReturns program is an effort to provide 'pop-up habitats' for some of the millions of shorebirds that migrate along the Pacific Flyway. Birds flying on this journey seek out the increasingly rare wetlands teeming with tasty insects to fuel their long-distance flights.
