For the last week or so I have seen lots of ducks, or maybe they’re geese, flying somewhere in the V formation.
First, I don’t know if they are just now flying south or if they are returning north early. If they are returning early, someone missed the forecast on the Weather Channel. We usually see a lot of birds in formation in November on their way to Florida or Mexico or wherever they winter. I never see them flying in V formation in the spring. Do they fly together in the spring? I’ve looked for the answer to that question but have yet to find an answer.
How many ducks does it take to make a V? Yesterday I saw a rather small V. It consisted of two birds—one leading and the other one flying a bit behind and to the left of the leader.
