Already in the fourth century BC, Aristotle had noticed the absence of swallows in winter and their return in spring. Despite the sagacity in his Historia animalum, he never managed to solve the mystery. (and to be honest, he never came close to it).
At the time, the most common belief was that birds flew to the moon, only to return to Earth in the spring. Or that by alighting among the branches of the trees in autumn, when the leaves fall, they shed their feathers and become branches.
The origin of migrations is lost in the mists of time.
Many migrants travel alone or in small groups.
Controlled by the changing of the seasons and by the length of the hours of light and thanks to hormonal stimuli, migrants know when it's time to leave. But they also know how to get there.
Birds, unlike us, leave when they have to leave and return when it's time to return.
We all have a home inside us, intimate, and it's in a different place for everyone. Everyone, like a magnetic force, is attracted to a place of his own, has this call within and doesn't even know what it is exactly. It can coincide with the place where you are born, but it is not necessarily the case, it is not always the case.
