   The birds that seasonally migrate a long distance (hundreds of miles) all seem to be traveling in flocks. Are there any birds that travel such long distace alone? f not, perhaps, it's because group travel has advantages over single travel, e.g., safer than individuals, less tiresome (airstreams from others' wingtips help staying afloat), etc?

   Do we know of any birds in the history of evolution that had the ability of travel long distance alone?
