Summary The common mode of migration among Afrotropical birds is movement from tropical to temperate areas to breed usually coinciding with the onset of summer and the rainy season. The proportion of species that are migratory can be predicted with considerable accuracy from the average temperature of the coldest month of the year. Once this exceeds 20°C, 90% or more of breeding species will be non-migratory. The likelihood of any one species being migratory is strongly influenced by diet… Expand
