From describing the many different types of bird migration to information on how to study and observe migration, all you need to know about this subject is included in this excellent book. The Orientation Mechanisms and Weather and Migration chapters reveal the amazing ways in which birds know how to travel vast distances without getting lost, and Great Journeys tells of the incredible feats of athleticism that birds such as swallows, arctic terns and Eleonora's falcons achieve when they fly for thousands of miles to reach their wintering grounds. This book takes a birdwatcher's view of migration. It focuses on what a birder might see and experience and question.
