Vagrancy in Birds
Authors: Alexander Lees and James Gilroy
Publisher: Princeton University Press
Published: Dec. 2021
There are so many factors that make different species of birds become vagrants. While other birds remain as migrants with a definied destiny following their instincts.
The authors did a tremendous study and made things a lot clearer..
- Vagrancy though compass errors.
- Vagrancy by wind drift
- Vagrancy by overshooting
- Vagrancy by extreme weather and irruptions
- Vagrancy an Natural dispersal
- Human driven vagrancy
- Consequences of vagrancy fo species and Ecosystems
All of these points are explained in detail in clear and comprehensive manner. It makes a lot more sense for all the questions that one has, why this or that happens?
This book has a large quantity of information about species that have wandered around in the world classified by families.
It certainly has a section about:
Avian Vagrancy in an era of Global Change.
I believe it’s one book to make you think of why birds are found all over the world, also, are they related from all know locations?
