25 Geese flying in a V formation can travel 70% farther than a goose fling alone.

    Holly Shi#! That's incredible! No F'n wonder they fly in formation! Of course it makes them much easier to kill by unskilled hunters.

    It is similar to drafting. Essentially, they are not having to produce the same amount of lift as the one in the front. They will also rotate positions so they can keep the formation going for long distances.

    Huh, I've watched them doing that but didn't know the reason.

    They never fly here. Just crap everywhere and chase kids...the chasing kids part is purdy funny
