Most non-migratory animals grow up, live and die in the same general area in which they were born. If that area was not capable of providing food, water, shelter and a place to reproduce, then the parent of the animal would not have survived to live there and reproduce in the first place. So, by definition, if a non-migratory species exists for multiple generations in a given area, then that area must be providing suitable habitat for that species.
