But the thinking is that if dinosaur migrations were analagous to avian
migrations, that they would be travelling toward the cold.  Why do birds
do this?  Could be to take advantage of great productivity of arctic
summer or to nest in a place of lower predator density.  Presumably,
similar motives were in existence in non-avian days.
