What are migrants, and why do such birds migrate ?

In bird-land many of the inhabitants spend their time, in different parts of the world, at different times of the year. The swallow is a typical migrant, spending summer in our own country and returning to warmer climes before winter. This practice is generally followed by insect-eating birds. If they stayed in this land during the winter they would starve for lack of food.
