This trip is a reaction to climate, changes accessing to foods or find a suitable habitat. Presence of birds in district proves the stability of area and authenticity in cycle of nature.
Some of these trips are erratic or one way and some of the birds are natives and sedentary birds and they do not switch to new place and is a taken of stability in habitat.
