Why do birds leave Poland in autumn?
Every year in the fall, we can see the great migrations of birds that leave our country and fly to warm countries. This is due to the fact that in the autumn and winter periods in Poland there is simply not enough food for them. The birds therefore look for other areas, more to the south, where it is warmer and where they can find enough food. For example, our Polish storks travel even 10 thousand kilometers during their journey to the areas of Africa where they winter.
Then, when spring approaches and it gets warmer, life in Poland comes back to life. Fruits and smaller animals appear, and there is enough food again. Then the birds set off on their return journey and come back to our country for the spring and summer period.
