Photographer's Note

Why would Arctic Tern (Sterna paradisaea) be entitled to be the TrekEarth bird?

Quotes from Wikipedia:
"The Arctic Tern is famous for its migration; it flies from its Arctic breeding grounds to the Antarctic and back again each year.
This 19,000 km journey each way ensures that this bird sees two summers per year and more daylight than any other creature on the planet.
The average Arctic Tern in its life will travel a distance equal to going to the moon and back."

Title Voyager refers to two satellites that have gone further than any other objects from our planet.

Happy 10th anniversary TrekEarth!
