    The question of how birds find their way between breeding and wintering grounds has puzzled people for as long as they have been aware of the phenomenon of we know many more parts of the puzzle's solution than we did even twenty-five years ago. Some would argue that there are really two puzzles: (1) how birds navigate over thousands of miles to find their way between breeding. Wolfgang and Roswitha Wiltschko provide a perceptive review of magnetic orientation in birds, a piece dedicated to Fritz Merkel, the pioneer in studies of magnetic orientation. Sergei Kharitonov and Doug­ las Siegel-Causey are concerned with the behavioral ecology of seabird coloniality, emphasizing their field experiences in the USSR and the.

      The Only Bird Book You Need David Sibley, the man who raised the bar on guidebooks, releases a second edition of his best-selling guide to birds. Summary. Recent experimental studies (since ca. ) on the ontogeny of orientation mechanisms in migratory birds are reviewed. The processes and interactions are synthesized into a framework that may help identify critical research by:

    Most birds cannot move their eyes, although there are exceptions, such as the great cormorant. Birds with eyes on the sides of their heads have a wide visual field, useful for detecting predators, while those with eyes on the front of their heads, such as owls, have binocular vision and can estimate distances when hunting. The American woodcock probably has the largest visual field of any bird. Orientation in birds.

About this book If it is true that science proceeds from a romantic through a scientific to a technological stage, then research on bird orientation is certainly on its move from its first to its second grade, and recent developments in radiotelemetry and satellite tracking of migrating birds might already indicate the advent of the third stage.
