Bird Migration [bûrd] [mī-'grā-shŭn]
The seasonal movement of birds from one region, or habitat, to another.

It is very common for birds to fly to the northern hemisphere in the summer where they can breed in a cooler climate and have more hours to feed their young on the abundant insect population, and then head to the southern hemisphere in the winter where the climate is more temperate. This is called migration. Some species migrate very long distances.
