Some comments / suggestions
Some pictures (INS, chart, polarization ?) are rather off-topic - I think they should be removed. Removed INS, Chart; recaptioned Polarization, this is really hard to explain without the image. Hope this is ok now.
Is the painting really relevant ? Would the Manx Shearwaters be a better lead picture ? Actually I think so, yes, but Done
Is "Most notably" appropriate/necessary in the lead ? Done
Would the "History" section be better titled something like "The study of animal navigation" or "Early ideas about mechanisms of animal navigation" ? Done
Category:Ethology is below Category:Animals so this article shouldn't be in both - I suggest removing the former as this article is about animal navigation, not exclusively about the study of animal migration. Done
I'm curious about examples like the bird released from Boston - the article doesn't really explain how it can achieve this feat of navigation. --- Lockley didn't know: his experiment (and calculation of its speed) merely showed that it did. Clarified wording.
not only so-called 'honey'bees,but all bees. When I was a boy,bees meant bees, unless one meant bumble bees or native bees; honey bees is a tautology for dimwits.AptitudeDesign (talk) 06:30, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
