Migration

How many times do I have to reassure you?
I will be there!

Every year The Doctor worries that I will not return.
Usually, just as this year, he has reconstructed, or renovated, the Taj Mahal. I can’t wait to see it this year.

My concern is, “Will Jonathan meet me there?”
Jonathan is young. I do not know how well he knows the tricks of survival.
Migration is an arduous and dangerous process.

Why do we migrate?

Because places like the tropics are too limited in space for breeding. We need lots of space when raising a family, and northern breeding grounds offer more room, food, and nesting habitats than the wintering grounds in the South.
So, we migrate from areas of low or decreasing resources to areas of high or increasing resources. The primary resource being sought is food. To survive we must migrate to a climate where the fish are more assessable.
H. Sapiens do not understand the mechanisms initiating migratory behavior. They think migration may be triggered by a combination of changes in day length, lower temperatures, and changes in food supply and/or genetic predisposition.
Ha ha. That’s funny. They haven’t figured it out yet.

Joyfully,
Harriett

    Hi Harriett, a Scout has arrived at the Doctor’s Purple Martin Sanctuary that is near your nest. Your Martin neighbors are on their way. See you soon.

  2. Thanks, I cannot wait to see them.
