Hi all.  Now that I have actually seen this classic oddity of migration, I am interested in the most plausible theory on how it arrived here.  Some that I have heard don't make common sense.  If it is spring in the Southern Hemisphere, then migrating birds should be heading away from the equator southward.  One guide simply states that some birds make a 180 degree mistake.  What's the best theory?  Thanks,
