Birds of a Feather

Why do birds stand together and all face the same direction?

Materials - The view of birds from a window.

Process - Watch the birds for a nice quiet no noise no TV no conversation just peace and reflection for an hour.

Result - They know how to stay warm! The design of the bird's body allows the least resistance to oncoming wind. If they stood randomly with the wind hitting them from the side or the back it would ruffle the birds' feathers and the warm air trapped un

der their feathers would escape leaving the bird subject to the cold wind.
