Migrating pierid butterflies use a sun compass in order to head in a preferred flight direction. When blown off-course by the wind, butterflies adjust their heading to compensate for cross-track wind drift. They are capable of drift compensation over water when and where landmarks are visible on the shore. They are also capable of a more inaccurate form of drift compensation over the sea when and where landmarks are not visible.
