The animals which more away temporarily to tide over the unfavourable stressful environmental conditions of a habitat to a more favourable area and return to their original habitat when the stressful conditions are over are called Migratory animals.

Examples:

  1. Siberian Cranes migrate to the Keoladeo Ghana National Park in Bharatpur, Rajasthan during winter and fly back to Siberia with the onset of summer.
  2. The Arctic tern (Sterna paradisaea) migrates from the Arctic region (in summer) to Antarctica in autumn and returns to the north pole during spring.
  3. Mammals like Whales, Caribou, Reindeer, Elks migrate to warmer places during winter in search of food.
  4. The Gray Whales migrates from the Arctic ocean to the Lagoons for breeding.
