There was a different experiment with bees where bees followed a feeding station as it was taken around a building. The bees that followed it stuck to that route, but the bees they danced for in the hive flew straight to it over the top of the building. They were not told how to get there, but where it was.
Both birds and bees knew where their destination was. Not like I would know, in relation to other things, but in absolute terms, more like a mariner setting course with a sextant from an unknown port for an island at known coordinates. Except they only have tiny brains, can’t do math and don’t have sextants, stunning!
