Why Birds Fly in ‘V’ Formation?

Haven’t you asked yourself or were you’d been curious enough to ask why birds form ‘V’ when they fly in a flock?

Birds Fly in 'V' Form

I actually asked not just myself before, but also some people including my mom. But sad to know, they all do not know what really the reason behind why they form ‘V’ shape and how they perfectly do it.

Good enough, researchers from Royal Veterinary College in London made a thorough investigation about this and revealed that birds do know what they’re doing and they do are aware where the other birds are. The researchers, in fact, concluded that each bird able to lift the tip of the wings of the bird ahead of them and with that position, birds can do timing of their wing beats.

Isn’t that a clever move for those birds? Next time, I should have a recorder with me, not just an olympus ls-10, but a video recorder so I can perfectly catch how birds form ‘V’ in the sky.

Exciting! Isn’t it?

Circle Tanks and Aquariums are IN!

For every new year, we always hear that circles are in — should I say, round objects, round fruits or even dotted dresses are should be worn during the New Year’s eve for a good luck to come. Is this also applicable to aquarium tanks? I wonder!

Round Aquarium

When an animal-enthusiast friend of mine arranged her tanks at home, she mentioned that her brother’s bass string, the one which is the same Bass Strings at musicians friend is messing on the area of their house where she first planned to position her tanks. But because of that stuff of her brother, she just opt to situate her tanks on another area inside their living room. She also changed almost all of her tanks with a round or circle so to welcome the new year with such.

Well, the arrangement still perfectly looked good with those round tanks. It’s, in fact, way better than her proposed arrangement.
