Providing a safe haven for winged visitors

https://www.deccanchronicle.com/nation/current-affairs/051218/providing-a-safe-haven-for-winged-visitors.html


Many species of birds fly long distances to avoid the cold weather and poor food availability in the higher latitudes in winter. They fly towards the equator and spend the winter in warmer climates. On the approach of summer, they fly back to the countries they came from, to make use of the longer days there to get access to food and breed. So bird migration is seasonal and India too sees huge numbers arrive every year.
