Do all birds migrate?

As we all know birds can fly long distances freely unlike us humans. So, why would they prefer to remain at a same place? Do all they migrate?

No, they don't all migrate. Migration is dangerous, exposing them to all sorts of hazards along the way, and they only do so when seasonal or other changes force them to.
