Birds have an innate need to build a nest or migrate during the winter.

Innate-- originating in the mind
Biological-- of or relating to biology or living organisms
Organisms-- an individual animal, plant, or single-celled life form
Reflexes-- an action that is performed as a response to a stimulus and without conscious thought
Instincts are not something that can be readily observed and scientifically tested.
Labeling something as an instinct does nothing to explain why some behaviors appear in certain instances but not in others.
