Thanks for the feedback, and Steph, the information answers lots of my questions. This full-of-wonder Earth amazes me constantly.
We see swarms of birds lifting out of the already harvested cornfields that are abundant here in Illinois. Very cool!
Very nice. I have seen that once in my life and it is truly beautiful.
They travel in flocks to avoid predators and also to take advantage of aerodynamics - and other reasons. Here's a good article on it. I remember learning about flocking behavior in class.
Thanks for posting this in the birds group - they would love this.
Beautiful! Love your album!
Cool Joan! You are much better at computer stuff than I am! I love the swarms of birds! They look amazing!
@Steph , I am trying to figure out how I get this over to your site. I am slow in figuring these days.
How do birds stay together in such patterns? Migratory birds present such beautiful sights and sounds. I wonder how they choose their leader, or if is leaderless? What happens to the very young and very old? Is there any evidence of compassion?
