In 1995, an Argentine biologist researching red knots in Tierra del Fuego captured and banded a flock of birds. One of the younger ones was labeled B95. Eighteen years later, he is still being spotted along his storied migration route.
Extraordinarily, this means that this little 4-ounce shorebird has flown at least 320,000 miles in his life.
