My daughter called me: "Are they really flying so tight?"


No, I said, there is plenty of space — height — but the
600mm compression steals it visually.

Migratory birds use the "V" formation to indeed ease 
flight by reducing wind resistance over the great dis-
tances of their routes to destination.

Non migratory ones won't bother about that as they
are more sprinters or acrobats than marathon flyers.
