Tourists flying in for summer season
- The murres are coming up from the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of North America!
- Greater Snow Geese are travelling the Atlantic flyway from their winter vacation spots on the American east coast.
- Albatrosses are gliding in from some of the Pacific Islands.
- And watch out! The word on the street is that a gang of hitmen are coming up from Central America to make trouble. It must be those rambunctious raptors, the peregrine falcons!
