    Birds

    Birds migrate from one place to another in order to get rid from seasons.
    "get rid of" or "get rid from" Which one has to be used in this sentence.

    Neither. First, the expression is "get rid of", not "from". But use of "get rid of" in your example is not used in that way. To get rid of means to discard, eliminate or recover (as from a cold). In your example I would say "Birds migrate from one place to another in order to enjoy the same climate."
