Pied Wheatear (11,184 miles)

3 of 9

You don't have to be big to travel far, as the Pied Wheatear proves. This small insect-eating bird travels from the extreme southeast of Europe to China, wintering in India and northeastern Africa. Moving from breeding grounds to wintering grounds and back means one bird may travel more than 11,000 miles in a year.
