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.

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?
