About this title

Synopsis:

There are forty species of hawks in North America, including vultures, the California condor, and the bald eagle, our national bird. Heintzelman's monumental study is a comprehensive survey of what we know about the migrations of these magnificent birds in North America, Central America, and the West Indies. After a general introduction on migration season, speeds, and methodology, eleven detailed chapters survey migration routes and statistics in all the following regions: eastern and western Canada, the Great Lakes area, New England, the Middle Atlantic states, southern Appalachia, the Gulf Coast, the Central states, Western states, Central America, and the West Indies. Subsequent chapters deal with the influence of weather systems and local weather variables, updrafts, thermals, altitudes and the daily rhythm of migrations, the influence of age and geography, and the role of hawk counts as indices to population trends.

From Library Journal:

Heintzelman has been studying hawk migration for over 25 years, and has published extensively on the topic; this monograph summarizes what is currently known about hawk migration patterns and the factors that affect them in North and Central America and the West Indies. The text is divided into four sections covering history and methodology, important observation sites, the influence of weather, and geographic and demographic factors. Scientifically rigorous long-term data are available from so few sites that most of the author's conclusions are necessarily tentative, but some reasonably clear patterns do emerge. Though written for a scientific audience, the book will also be valuable to advanced amateur birders and to falconers. The comprehensive bibliography is a valuable reference tool in its own right.
