Why do birds fly in an inverted "V" formation?

TEAM WORK IS DREAM WORK

The good sense of the Goose: In the fall when you see geese heading south for the winter flying in the "V" formation, you might be interested in knowing what science has discovered about why they fly that way. It has been learned that as each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% greater range than if each bird flew on its own.

PEOPLE WHO ARE A PART OF A TEAM AND SHARE A COMMON DIRECTION GET WHERE THEY ARE GOING QUICKER AND EASIER, BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING QUICKER AND EASIER AND BECAUSE THEY ARE TRAVELLING ON THE TRUST OF ONE ANOTHER.

Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go through it alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the power of the flock.

If we have as much sense as a goose, we will share information with those who are headed the same way we are going. When the lead goose gets tired, he rotates back in the wing and another goose takes over.
IT PAYS TO SHARE THE VISION AND TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE!
The geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep their speed.

                  The next time you see a formation of geese, remember ..................
IT IS A REWARD, A CHALLENGE AND A PRIVILEGE to be contributing to a TEAM!

Scientists have determined that the "V" -shaped formation that geese use when migrating serves two important purposes:
First, it conserves their energy. Each bird flies slightly above the bird in front of him, resulting in a reduction of wind resistance. The birds take turns being in the front, falling back when they get tired. In this way, the geese can fly for a long time before they must stop for rest.
The second benefit to the "V" formation is that it is easy to keep track of every bird in the group. Fighter pilots often use this formation for the same reason.

WORDS OF SUPPORT AND INSPIRATION HELP ENERGISE THOSE ON THE FRONT LINE, HELPING THEM TO KEEP FACE IN SPITE OF THE DAY-TO-DAY PRESSURES AND FATIGUE.

Finally, when a goose gets sick or is wounded by a gun shot and falls out, two geese fall out of the formation and follow the injured one down to help and protect him. They stay with him until he is either able to fly or until he is dead, and then they launch out with another formation to catch up with their group.

If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other when things get rough.
