Interesting scientific info...

Recommended Posts

I have noticed a large number of migrating geese the last several days. I find it interesting that one column of birds in the "V" is almost always considerably longer than the other. After countless hours of research on the interwebz I have found the surprising answer...

There are more geese in the longer column. ;D

Migrating birds that fly in formation have no leader, they take turns being the lead bird, one gets tired and another takes over,  it's drafting like in auto racing.  This is what I was told at the Green Cay nature preserve, lots of migrating birds stop there.

It's possible they weren't migrating. They could have been overwintering geese moving from one place to another.

NO NO NO -- That is not why geese fly in a V.

The reason is that is up north kids put kernels of corn together on a string. A goose eats one,  the next one eats one, this goes on until they are all strung together.

Thought everybody knew this.

There's also been an extensive study as to why the lead goose doesn't honk........

There's no one to pass  ;)
