Bird migration studies in India - the migrant Waders of the Family Charadridae

J. C. Daniel and S. S. Somane

The data on the family Charadriidae, members of which formed part of the 200,000 birds of various species and families ringed in India between 1959 and 1969, are examined with reference to their migratory movements between their summer and winter habitats. The weight changes of species wintering in India have also been studied and future problems for investigation are suggested.
