However, new research suggests we've misunderstood something important about these migratory songbirds.

In the video at the top of this page, CTV News Science and Technology Analyst Dan Riskin explains how these birds of a feather stick together as they move up and down the Americas, and why it means climate change might be more of a problem for them than we've realized.
