By Land or By Sea? What Route Do They Take?

A hummingbird flaps its wings 75 times per second during flight. Flying burns so much energy that a hummingbird typically eats every 15 minutes. When hummingbirds migrate, do you think they fly over land and feed on flowers along the way? Or do they fly over open seas, where there's no place to find food or rest? Look at the map and share your prediction.
