A frigatebird has the ability to glide over thousands of miles of water during months-long transoceanic migrations. And though they look like they’re slowly soaring, frigatebirds are fast flyers, speeding across the oceans at an estimated 95 mph and at altitudes upward of 12,000 feet, or as high as the Rocky Mountains, where freezing conditions exist. No other bird has been found to fly so high relative to sea surface. | Photo by Robbie Lisa Freeman.
