5. FLYING WITH THE MOON ON
THEIR WINGS
Every year during autumn and early winter
birds travel from their nestlings places to
warmer lands.
The willow warbler is the smallest of
all the birds.
The young migrating birds are the brave
little voyagers.
They make the return journey during spring
and early summer.
Ringing is done by capturing a bird and
placing on its leg a light band of metal of
plastic.
The band bears a number, date, an
identification mark and the address to
which the finder is requested to return the
ring.
The wild duck, the Rosy Pastor and the
wagtail come to our lakes from central Asia
and Siberia.
Birds migrate in winter to escape
the cold and to find food.
The Himalayas are 2,400 kms far
