I always look forward to the latest title in Collins's New Naturalist series. Here's their latest volume:

     Newton, Ian. Bird Migration. 2010. Collins. Paperback: 596 pages. Price: $50.00 U.S.
SUMMARY: This book is divided into four main sections: the first is introductory, describing the different types of bird movements, methods of study, and the main migration patterns seen around the British Isles; the second part is concerned mainly with the process of migration – with timing, energy needs, weather effects and navigation; the third with evolution and change in migratory behavior; and the fourth with the geographical and ecological aspects of bird movements.
RECOMMENDATION: For those interested in bird migration or the New Naturalist series.
