The newly-launched Bird Migration Explorer site hosted by The Audubon Society and its partners does what it says (for North America and some parts of Latin America,, anyway – sorry, other Global friends). Using mapping and tracking techniques, the Explorer allows you to follow the migratory patterns of many birds (with more to come, apparently). The maps are like works of art, unfolding in time-lapse. 

For today’s prompt, use the site (or some other)  to either track a species of birds, or explore one of the maps, and then use an image of migratory patterns (perhaps through a screenshot) and make it into a work of art (perhaps through a site like LunaPic).
