In the Ornithologists Dictionary by Johannes Erritzoe, Kaj Kampp, Kevin Winker and our own Clifford B. Frith, (2007), it states -

Resident: nonmigratory, staying in the breeding area year-round. Also called sedentary.

Sedentary: non-migratory, remaining in one general area throughout the year; also called resident.

I have found that this is the best source by far for explanation of ornithological terms. Lynx are the publishers.
