Where Do Birds Go In Winter? – It’s Okay to Be Smart

Watch more with these video collections:

Where do birds go for the winter, and when did we first figure out where they were disappearing to every year? Do they go to the moon, or are they off to fight battles with goat-riding armies? (Spoiler alert: Those theories are for the birds.) Joe Hanson of It’s Okay to Be Smart investigates bird migration, the seasonal journeys of our feathered friends to warmer climates.

Watch related videos: more kinds of migration, including TED Ed’s Bird migration, a perilous journey and Come fly with me: the physics of why birds fly in V-formation.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
