  4. Developing a Goose Sense of Community • The Goose Story

  5. This springwhen you see geeseheading north for the summerflying along in a "V" formation, youmight be interested in knowing what sciencehas discovered about why they fly that way. Ithas been learned that as each bird flaps itswings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediatelyfollowing. By flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.

  6. People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier, because they are traveling on the thrust of one another.

  7. Whenevera goose falls outof formation, it suddenlyfeels the drag and resistanceof trying to go it alone, and quicklygets into formation to take advantage of thelifting power of the bird immediately in front. (Ifwe have as much sense as a goose, we will stayin formation with those who are headed thesame way we are going.) When the lead goosegets tired, she rotates back in the wing andanother goose flies point. (It pays to take turnsdoing hard jobs - with people or with geeseflying north.) The geese honk from behind toencourage those up front to keep up theirspeed. (What do we say when we honk frombehind?)

  8. Finally(Now I wantyou to get this),when a goose gets sick,or is wounded by gun shotsand falls out, two geese fall out offormation and follow him down to help andprotect him. They stay with him until he is eitherable to fly or until he is dead, and then theylaunch out on their own or with anotherformation to catch up with the group. (If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other like that.)
