Why do birds fly in a five shape?
Reminds me of the old joke…What’s this?
Ans: A Roman ordering five beers.
Cause they don’t have change for a X.
I thought it had to do with the five gods of the Pantheon. Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Ares…
Why do birds fly in a five shape? To help those who can only fly in a single, straight line to go be four.
With a flock of birds why is one leg of the V longer that the other?
A bird can save energy by mooching off the air flow created by its flock-mate.
I flew into a flock of ducks once, and they flew away from me. My airspeed indicator read 115 miles per hour.
watch the birdy!
I’ve always wondered why when geese fly so close to each other they don’t goose the goose in front of them.
And I also wonder why I think of those things.
If they flew in a ten shape (X) they wouldn’t know which way they were going.
