spending senior years like migratory birds

This refers to the growing number of urban Chinese retirees seeking to improve their quality of life. They set aside a couple of months each year for traveling or staying in less-expensive countryside resorts or senior care centers where they relax and enjoy the fresher air and slower-paced life. This "migratory bird" trend is also considered a way of cutting down on living costs, leaving seniors more cash for enjoying themselves.
