Thanks for the feedback, and Steph, the information answers lots of my questions. This full-of-wonder Earth amazes me constantly.

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.

@Steph , I am trying to figure out how I get this over to your site. I am slow in figuring these days.
