Down by the Water’s Edge
A Water Highway-Did you know that nearly 95 percent of all the animals that live on land use creek edges like this one to travel from one place to another? And lots of birds fly along rivers and streams when they migrate, stopping along the way to rest and eat so they have enough energy for such long trips.
