Want to learn birds migration in general, information needed (1 Viewer)

Hi everybody,

I am new to this birds world and I want to learn some basic information about the birds migration in general, for example some general information about birds migration research in the past, what king of birds are migrated in different continent, etc. I know it seems too simple, but I want to leard from the basic knowledge. Where can I find those informations? Is there special web site out there, or within this forum?

Thanks for all!

Daniel

Hi Daniel

The British Trust of Ornithology Ringing Scheme in partnership with other ringing schemes around the world have been providing the data for migration studies for the past 100 years or and more latterly, tracking methods using satellite and telemetry. This has enabled migration maps to be produced and much research to be carried out on patterns, timing and routes of migration for hundreds of different species of birds.

You can find Reports and Research here https://www.bto.org/our-science/migration/migration

Also, the Migration thread (which you obviously have found!) has lots of interesting threads.

The Migration Atlas might be of interest, it’s the Birds of Britain and Ireland but there will be quite a lot of overlap of migration routes with continental migrants of the same species

You can look up things that attract your interest with Google Scholar. Lots of interesting papers out there.

A quick reminder to posters that Google isn't very easily accessible in China (though I think there are ways and means of doing so).

I'd recommend to Daniel a good look through Ebird to get insights into which species are migrating and when.

Some sites in China have a reasonable amount of data. You should be able to make some good observations in Fuzhou - I remember being really impressed with the migrant shorebirds there when I visited a couple of years ago.
