Integrated use of celestial cues

Nocturnal migrants often set off around dusk, when celestial cues related to the sun (such as sunset position, horizon glow, and skylight polarisation pattern) are clearly visible, and when at the same time the star pattern is gradually emerging. They could therefore make use of all these celestial cues within a relatively short period. The fact that migratory birds keep flying in the same direction over the transition from day to night or night to day (e.g. Myres 1964) implies that they can switch between sun and stars for navigation, or that they rely on some other cue, such as the earth's magnetic field, to maintain their course. In addition, some arctic species which prefer to migrate by night at lower latitudes necessarily migrate in daylight at high latitudes in summer. Moonlight can hinder the use of star patterns and produce the same disturbing effects as cloud (Sauer 1957). The moon itself seems to play no obvious role in bird orientation.

Weather effects and other aspects

Weather has obvious effects on bird migration. It influences the times when birds can travel, the energy costs and risks of the journey, and the visibility of any celestial or ground-based cues that birds might use for navigation. This chapter is concerned with how birds behave in different weather conditions, with the altitudes at which they fly, with day-night patterns of migration, and with the influence of social factors, such as the sizes and formations of flocks. In all these aspects of migration, the interest is in seeing how birds of different kinds adjust their behaviour to prevailing conditions so as to minimise the costs and risks of long-distance travel.

Migration And Weather

The advent of radar greatly clarified the situation, because it enabled migrants to be detected at almost all heights (missing only those below the radar horizon), day and night, and in all weathers. From radar-based studies, consensus has now emerged that, within the appropriate seasons, migration is favoured by fine anti-cyclonic conditions with favourable tailwinds, and also by rising temperatures in spring and by falling temperatures in autumn. In effect, at both seasons the birds prefer to migrate under clear skies with following or light winds. Clear skies assist navigation, especially at night, by making celestial cues more visible, while following winds reduce the time and energy spent on the journey, and the risk of being blown off course. In contrast, birds seldom take off to migrate in strong opposing winds, dense cloud, mist and rain. Opposing winds make progress difficult or impossible, cloud hampers navigation, while mist or rain can soak many kinds of birds and force...

Step One The Big picture

Ironically, it is here that we have the most flexibility with new worlds. The same intelligent creatures that don't like rivers flowing uphill have no problems accepting a world surrounded by crystal spheres that move the celestial bodies across the sky while intersecting the many planes. Magic on a massive, universal scale is more easily accepted than on a small scale because creatures don't interact with astrophysics as much as they interact with gravity. Sometimes the big miracle is the most believable.

Changes in conditions with altitude

Apart from wind, the main weather factor influencing the altitude of migration is the cloud base. Most birds fly below the clouds where they can see the ground. The height of the cloud base therefore limits the vertical spread of migration, and if the cloud descends, it compresses the stream downwards, so the average flight altitude decreases. In some situations, however, birds fly above the clouds, presumably relying entirely on celestial or magnetic cues for navigation, with no visual reference to the ground below. Migration streams can also be compressed laterally as they are funnelled through mountain passes, or concentrate along coasts, river valleys or other 'leading lines', when birds may fly at low levels even without cloud cover.

Cues Used In Direction Finding

In familiar areas, and when moving over longer distances into unknown terrain, a reliable geographical reference system is needed for navigation. At least two types of factors can act as compasses - celestial and geomagnetic - and both are used by birds as directional aids (for reviews see Emlen 1975, Able 1980, Wiltschko & Wiltschko 1995, 2003, Berthold 1996, Akesson 2003). In migratory birds, compasses based on the sun (and various sunset cues), stars and magnetic information have been studied in detail, but a prior requirement for using any compass is that the bird should 'know' beforehand - either by inheritance or experience - what direction it has to take. Also, effective use of any of these compasses requires a period of learning, and frequent revision as the bird continually changes location while on migration. One feature of celestial cues, such as the sun and stars, is that they appear to change in position through each 24-hour cycle, as the earth spins on its axis. In the...

Overview of orientation cues

Information from the sun and related pattern of skylight polarisation, from star patterns and from the earth's magnetic field. These different cues would normally give the same directional message. The use of the sun compass requires a time-compensation mechanism, through which the bird can allow for changes in the sun's position during the day, while the rotation centre of the night sky indicated by the stars gives the direction towards the geographical poles (Emlen 1975). Geomagnetic compass courses are given by the angle of inclination (varying from horizontal at the equator to vertical at the poles). The reliability of these compasses might vary between regions, seasons and local conditions, so that for instance the sun compass cannot be used if the sky is totally overcast, the star compass might not be visible during the round-the-clock daylight in high-latitude summers, and a magnetic compass based on the angle of inclination is unusable around the geomagnetic poles and the...

Observational evidence on orientation

Observations made directly or with radar have shown that birds prefer to migrate under clear skies, when sun or stars are visible (Chapter 4). Nevertheless, those that do fly in overcast sometimes seem no less well orientated in that their flight relative to the ground and air mass appears 'as straight, level and fast as comparable birds flying on clear nights' (Able 1982a). Such behaviour might be expected if birds were migrating on magnetic cues. However, at other times nocturnal migrants seem to become disorientated when they enter low cloud, mist or rain and when neither sky nor ground is visible to them. When over land they normally settle, but when over the sea they mill around in various directions gradually drifting downwind (as revealed by radar). However, a brief break in the cloud to expose the sky is enough to enable them to get back on course. Such observations suggest that birds depend on celestial navigation and are not normally guided by cues from the earth's magnetic...

Problems at high latitudes

Migration routes in the Arctic and Antarctic are of special interest. For it is at high latitudes that great circle routes bring the greatest proportional reductions in distance. It is also near the poles where the longitude lines are closer together that migrants become exposed to the most rapid time-shifts, and where birds are faced with difficulties in using any sort of recognised compass. Use of a sun compass brings problems of time compensation during rapid longitudinal (east-west) displacement, but is still usable. Use of a star compass is not possible in the polar summer because stars are not visible for months on end. And a magnetic compass is unreliable in a wide region around the north and south magnetic poles owing to the rapid changes in declination of the geomagnetic field in those regions, as well as the very steep angles of inclination. After considering the possibilities, Alerstam & Gudmundsson (1999) concluded that shorebirds tracked by radar off northern Siberia were...

Concluding Remarks

In conclusion, the navigational tools available to migrating birds include (a) a celestial compass based on sun, skylight polarisation and star patterns (b) a magnetic compass based on the earth's magnetic field (c) an internal clock, recording diurnal (circadian) and longer-term time changes and (d) an inherited mean migratory direction and time programme, which together ensure that the bird flies in an appropriate direction for an appropriate time. Some, if not all, birds also have a map sense used for homing to a previously experienced place. Moreover, the fact that birds can re-find places they have already visited implies a good spatial memory.

Ecological determinants of range size

Elephants seem to track changes in the phenology of vegetation and water availability within their home range and move accordingly. It is not improbable that other tracking mechanisms also operate in elephant movement. I have already mentioned the ability to detect moisture or infrasound from thunderstorms, but it is now well known that animals have navigational abilities based on both terrestrial and celestial cues. We can expect an intelligent, well-traveled animal like the elephant to retain in its memory a detailed cognitive map of its home range. Several experiments in which elephants, usually problem animals, have been translocated have failed, with the animal returning to its place of capture, sometimes traversing over 200 km through presumably unfamiliar terrain. This certainly suggests a navigational ability that goes beyond a cognitive map of its familiar range.

Box 61 Conservation value of aspen stands in maintaining the diversity of animal plant and fungus groups in Scotland

Sedge Carex laevigata, pendulous sedge C. pendula, small teasel Dipsacus pilosus, wood horsetail Equisetum sylvaticum, herb paris Paris quadrifolia and small-leaved lime Tilia cordata provide a very strong indication of ancient woodland, while wood anemone Anemone nemorosa, wood-sorrel Oxalis acet-osella and yellow archangel Lamiastrum galeobdolon are amongst the species which occur to a rather greater extent in other habitats and so are weaker indicators. As already mentioned most indicators of ancient woodlands do not readily colonize new sites so their presence tends to show that the community is long-lived, although there are regional differences. In Shropshire, for example, dog's mercury Mercurialis perennis is found in gardens and recent hedgerows as well as base-rich woodlands, but it is an ancient woodland vascular plant indicator (AWVP) in the more continental climate of eastern Britain (Rackham, 2003). The AWVP list for Shropshire gives both strong indicators and others...

Compass Direction and Distance Traveled

Even on their briefest journeys, like the one meter or so excursions of fiddler crabs on their grazing trips away from their burrows, animals need to keep track of two kinds of information, if they are to eventually return home their compass bearing and the distances they travel. This becomes even more important on longer forays, like the 600 m foraging excursions of desert ants or the many kilometres bees often cover when collecting nectar or water. The compass cues that are available on Earth depend on the scale at which animals move - a distant tree may suffice as a beacon for journeys of a few meters, a distant mountain can serve to provide compass direction for excursions of a few hundred meters, but movements beyond such 'suburban' distances require compass information that is reliable and does not change over large distances of travel. The Earth's magnetic field direction offers one such invariant cue, the celestial bodies Sun, Moon, and stars, by virtue of their comparatively...

Habitat creation and conservation

In recent years the creation of attractive herb communities, for both meadows and woodland floors, has become increasingly common in areas used by the public (Buckley, 1989). Helliwell (1996), who has worked on habitat transfers involving grassland, marshland and woodland, provides a valuable summary of the general principles involved, paying particular attention to soils and the need to appreciate the considerable differences between the various layers of strongly stratified soils when this material is moved to a receptor site. This section, however, is largely based on experience of woodland habitat creation in Telford New Town and the Wolverhampton area in central England (Packham et al., 1995 Cohn et al., 2000) in which many of the species involved were ancient woodland vascular plant indicators AWVPs (see Fig. 3.9 and Sections 4.1 and 5.9). The first experiment was made in the (11.2m2) plot of pedunculate oak woodland planted in 1981 and used for defoliation experiments (Fig....

Ringing

Ring recoveries to provide the necessary information. No less than 24 such large-scale experiments, involving a wide range of species from Barn Swallows Hirundo rustica to White Storks Ciconia ciconia, were done in the first half of the twentieth century at Vogelwarte Rossitten on the Courland Spit (Schuz et al. 1971), followed by others in other parts of Europe and in North America (Chapter 9). Recoveries of birds trapped, ringed and released without displacement provided the control comparisons. Such experiments revealed much about the orientation and navigational abilities of birds, and about differences in behaviour between young and older individuals. In more recent years, much work on orientation and navigation has involved homing pigeons, which are easy to keep and handle. Or it has involved wild birds which were trapped at migration times and their directional preferences assessed in 'orientation cages', after which they were released to continue their journeys (see later)....

Seacrossings

A second problem for landbirds making overwater flights concerns navigation. They have no ground features below to help keep them on course, but must rely entirely on celestial or magnetic cues. If they encounter mist or rain, they often become disoriented, and mill around for hours or drift far off course, as radar observations confirm. Nor can they shelter from rain, for if they come down on the water, they usually perish. In sea-crossings, natural selection acts harshly against any kind of mistake or mishap, and abundant evidence points to heavy mortality of migrating landbirds over water (Chapter 28). One way round these problems is to fly high enough to avoid mist and rain, and on long overwater flights birds have often been detected by radar at heights exceeding 4 km above sea level, but high-altitude flights bring other problems (see later).

Finding the way

To migrate effectively, birds need a sense of where they are, or need to be, a sense of direction, an ability to navigate from one place to another, and a sense of time, both seasonal and diurnal (essential for navigation by some celestial cues, see later). In short, they need the equivalents of a map, compass, calendar and clock, together with a good memory, all packed into a brain that in some birds is no bigger than a pea. In this chapter, I can provide only a brief review of this vast subject area, concentrating on ecological aspects (for more extensive reviews of particular aspects, see Berthold 1993, Wiltschko & Wiltschko 1995, 2003, Akesson 2003). Despite much research, many unanswered questions remain.

Time shifts

In using celestial cues, long east-west migrations present greater navigational problems than north-south flights because they involve time shifts, as the birds pass through successive time zones. If long-distance migrants using celestial cues to navigate did not allow for time shifts during the course of their east-west journeys, they would make ever greater directional errors, and would thereby veer progressively further off course. The problem created by time shift is greatest at the highest latitudes, where the longitude lines are closest together, requiring more rapid adjustment. Hence, a second presumed function of an internal clock is to measure the changes in timing of sunrise and sunset, as the bird flies long distances west or east. High-latitude east-west or west-east flights are not uncommon, being performed every year, for example, by the many waterfowl and seabirds that migrate along the northern coasts of Eurasia and North America to reach the Atlantic or Pacific Oceans...

Cue conflicts

In the wild, birds may regularly calibrate one compass cue against another. Thus, while the rotation of the earth relative to the sky provides a stable reference for defining geographic north and south, changing geomagnetic declination renders the earth's magnetic field less reliable as a geographic reference. Accordingly, young birds were found able to use celestial information to calibrate a migratory orientation response to the earth's magnetic field (Weindler et al. 1996, Bingham et al. 2003). The combined experience of the night sky and the natural geomagnetic field seemed crucial for songbirds at high latitude to find the appropriate migration direction to a population-specific wintering area (Weindler et al. 1996). Experienced adult Savannah Sparrows Passerculus sandwichensis also used celestial cues to recalibrate their migratory orientation to an experimentally

Apparent primary cue

Shifted magnetic field (Able & Able 1995). Subsequent experiments revealed that Savannah Sparrows used polarised light cues from the region of sky near the horizon to calibrate the magnetic compass at both sunrise and sunset (Muheim et al. 2006). Once a bird has established geographic north and south with respect to the local geomagnetic field, magnetic cues could come to assume a greater role in navigation. In another experiment, Catharus thrushes caught on migration were exposed to a deflected magnetic field during twilight, and then released and radio-tracked on their subsequent night flights (Cochran et al. 2004, Cochran & Wikelski 2007). Their tracks indicated that the thrushes recalibrated their magnetic compass in relation to twilight cues, and then relied on their (miscalibrated) magnetic compass for their nocturnal flight, apparently ignoring stellar cues. The experimental birds changed to normal orientation again on succeeding nights, apparently having recalibrated their...

Pelagic birds

While we have no reason to suppose that pelagic birds navigate differently from landbirds, using celestial and geomagnetic cues, other mechanisms have been suggested based on olfactory cues (smell-gradients) or on 'route-based navigation'. Among petrels, in particular, the brain structure suggests a well-developed olfaction sense, and undoubtedly these birds use their keen sense of smell to find food sources and nest-sites but whether they use olfaction for long-distance orientation remains an open question. For route-based navigation, an animal must encode its home location with respect to its current position. When moving, it must continuously update the home-pointing vector by subconsciously processing information collected en route about its changes of direction and location. Such an updating process, called path integration, works independently of the presence of landmarks, and could be useful in featureless seascapes. Although known in insects, the process has not been tested in...

Orientation in Space

World into a celestial and a terrestrial hemisphere, separated by a visual horizon line, with light coming from above. Animals have evolved a number of sensor systems to determine 'what is up' they use collections of heavy materials bedded on shearing sensors (statocysts or otholiths) which signal the direction of gravitational pull. Some water insects trap air bubbles in sensory hair fields which serve the same role. In terrestrial animals, the distribution and orientation of body mass relative to gravity can be measured by pro-prioceptors, in vertebrates by muscle spindles and stretch receptors in the joints and around internal organs, and in insects by mechanoreceptors in the head-thorax and thorax-abdomen joints. The second absolute reference is the fact that light comes from above. Insects and fish are known to use this property of the world to align their vertical body axis and or their eyes. The compound eyes of especially flying insects are aided in this task by an additional...

Exotic plants

Exotic or alien plants (neophytes) can be harmful in a variety of ways. In the UK, efforts are being made to eradicate the rapid-growing turkey oak Quercus cerris from stands of native oaks, as it hybridizes with them producing trees with poor quality timber due to 'shakes' (internal cracks along the rays or growth rings). The large woody shrub Rhododendron ponticum, native to Turkey and Spain, has become a notorious intruder, especially in the British Isles where it is extensively naturalized and spreads by seeding and suckering. Introduced as cover for game birds such as the pheasant, it spreads to form dense thickets under which little else can live. Japanese knotweed Fallopia japonica and Himalayan balsam Impatiens glandulifera are amongst the larger herbs creating similar problems. A number of garden escapes - Spanish bluebell Hyacinthoides hispanica and variegated yellow archangel Lamiastrum galeobdolon ssp. argenteum - are causing concern in the UK as they hybridize with the...
