Be bird brained lessons from the geese
Be Bird Brained:Lessons from the Geese

  • By flying in a V formation, the whole flock can fly 71% further than if each bird on its own.

    If people share a common direction, they can get there quicker & easier.

  • Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed!



  • When a goose weakens or is wounded and falls out of formation, two geese will fall out and follow him down to protect him. They stay with him until he is able to fly or until he dies. Then, they set out on their own or with another formation until they catch up with the group.

  • If we had the sense of a goose, we would stand by each other like that!


Questions
