Some birds can navigate using the Earth's magnetic field!


These birds, including many migratory species, have a special magnetite protein in their beaks that allows them to sense the magnetic field. This incredible ability helps them navigate vast distances during migration and find their way back home with impressive accuracy.

How does this magnetic sense help birds navigate such long distances during migration?
Wow, that's so cool! 🐦✨ It's amazing how birds have magnetite proteins in their beaks that let them sense the Earth's magnetic field. 🧭 This built-in compass helps them navigate during migration, covering huge distances and still finding their way home. 🌍🏠 Nature really is incredible!
