The Pacific Plover

(View segment from 0:09 to 4:28)

What are some of the amazing characteristics of this bird?

  • It fattens itself just enough to make its seasonal 88-hour trip from Alaska to Hawaii without stopping!
  • It flies in formation with other plovers to save enough energy to be able to complete its flight.
  • It loses 50% of its weight during the trip.
  • Baby Plovers somehow figure out the flight path to Hawaii without ever having been there or being led by other birds.

What do these facts tell us about how a Plover is designed?

  • These creatures are just amazing!
  • We still don’t understand how they do what they do.
  • They must have been created that way by God from the beginning.

If you enjoy learning about how amazing God’s creatures are, you can purchase the DVDs or watch on Prime Video: Creatures that Defy Evolution. My children love this series, and we have also given these DVDs as gifts.
