      Do you recall the groups of regular Eagles (Cheel) flying high in the skies while you were growing up? Perhaps you took the migratory birds as Eagles.

        Yes cuz I dont think migratory birds take stopovers. The birds I remember as eagles (You are right), used to stop and stop for hours. We had large trees outside out house and our roof top was larger too where i used to spend time so I watched them hovering over for hours.

          Migratory birds take stopovers at different ranges depending on the specie. I heard some of the birds would take a stopover somewhere in Afghanistan. The greatest mystery for me was their ability to navigate the route and pass that information to next generation. It seems there is a general consensus now that it involves both innate and learned abilities. They come fitted with a natural compass to sense Earth’s magnetic field in order to stay on track.
