              Bar-tailed godwits fly over Marion Bay in Australia's Tasmania state on Dec. 27, 2013. A young bar-tailed godwit appears to have set a non-stop distance record for migratory birds by flying at least 13,560 kilometers (8,435 miles) from Alaska to the Australian state of Tasmania, a bird expert said Friday, Oct. 28, 2022.
