Diplomatic missions among migratory birdsCountries and states are often prone to have sour relations with each other. Animals usually don't get affected by this political divide. Animals come under Nature's law. They are subjects of Nature and not nations. So their diplomatic missions are towards Nature alone.
First flocks/vanguard of migratory birds sour high, smelling the air and checking for water holes. They check for habitats like we check for hotels. Resting near the water hole, they might snack on some foreign delicacies. Usually exotic nuts, fruits, small animals and insects.
Rest of the flocks follow the vanguard soon and join them. Each turf they pass through, is first familiarised by the vanguard flocks. On their way these birds sometimes disperse foreign seeds into new lands, like gifts from ambassadors of a foreign country. Flocks usually gather at specific spots they negotiated for with Nature. As foreign diplomats, they never disrupt the local habitats much.
Nature's diplomats migrate each year to different countries.
