comment Is there a program that simulates biology on a molecular level?
I think this is a good answer, more useful than mine. But could you make it a bit more self-contained by saying a bit more about NAMD and maybe including an example reference where it is used in the literature? And why you think it's visualization package is particularly slick.

@RichardErickson I am not sure who your comment is directed at, but I think people would struggle to implement models like Karr, Sanghvi et al. in NetLogo. I think it is also a bit misleading to suggest that a completely novice modeler (of the sort that will be just starting with NetLogo) will be in a position to program their own model at the level of detail of Karr & Sanghvi.

comment Where do migratory birds go when it rains?
@Pimgd presumably most clouds can't move faster than birds since they can ride the same currents. So to avoid big clouds the birds could fly with (or alongside or in front of) the cloud. This would help explain Kyle's answer on why the ones that continue flying end up far away: staying out of the cloud forces them to fly off course.
