Migration of Birds by Frederick C. Lincoln and illustrated by Bob Hines is a government circular. The one being reviewed here dates 1950. There are more recent editions of this little book, but I review this one to emphasis the fact that there are many of these old government publications around that are quite useful in several ways. There is of course the historical aspect, but I find it fascinating to compare the data found in this work to that of the data which is being gathered and published today. Migration patterns, just as ranges, vary over time due to a number of different reasons. This particular circular which is 102 pages in length covers the origin of migration, time of migration, how birds migrate, where birds migrate, routes of migration, evolution of migration routes, vertical, vagrant, and perils of migration, influence of the weather on migration, problems of migration and then draws several conclusions.
