Comment: Swifts (Score 5, Informative) 99 99

The record is actually for flying the furthest in eight days across the Pacific, not the furthest non-stop flight ever as implied by the headline. Which is not surprising - the common swift, for example, can spend years in the air without landing. http://www.commonswift.org/records_english.html

Nonetheless, these birds are still impressive.

I am the wandering glitch -- catch me if you can.
