Intermediate Egrets Flight
V Formation

The V-shaped flight formation reduces the drag force that each bird experiences compared to if it were flying alone.

The bird in the lead position has to work the hardest. When this bird tires, it will give up the lead position and fall further back into one of the lines of the V for a more relaxed flight. Read more about the mystery of the V formation at BBC website.
