Martins and other birds fly to Georgia from Venezula every year in the Spring How do the birds in flight make it across the oceans without rest and food?

They put on fat in preparation for migration. Some birds nearly

double their weight. When they arrive at their destination they

will usually be below their normal weight. Birds take advantage of

air currents during ocean crossings. They often fly at night, which

uses less energy.
