Spring Migrants

The migratory birds are coming back, and while I'm happy to have so many noisy tweety birds around, I have to wonder...what's the point? That whole migration business seems like a big waste of time to me. I know I've blogged about this before, but I still don't get it. Those migratory birds fly thousands of miles just so they can spend the winter in a warm place with a lot of food. Well, I do the same thing, and I don't have to fly anywhere to do it. I just stay in my nice warm cage and let my person keep my food dish full. I don't know why those other birds don't do the same. Seems a lot easier to me. Sure, I can't go outside all winter, but so what? Outside isn't always so great anyhow. There are lots of predators and big scary cars and other unpleasant things out there. So, personally, I can't see that migration brings any great benefits that are worth the trouble of all that flying.
