In September, a bar-tailed godwit flew 8,100 miles for 239 hours without rest from Alaska to New Zealand and set the world record for the longest continual flight by any land bird by distance. [: Onioram CC by SA 4.0]pic.twitter.com/1KC8mu4GLX
Good for them.
Hmmhm, that's an air bird.
How do we know? Did it tweet about it?

The bird must have been lugging a leg band as well
What about the one that turned back because of adverse weather? Did that one end up flying further?
Land bird? Do you mean this little thing was competing with ostriches, emus and such?
If it didn’t rest how did it replenish energy?
