Travel plans are for the birds

So despite all the cold, it appears that travel plans for birds, still have a green light. At least for St. Louis, this according to an article over in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch by Susan Weich entitled, “The Eagles and Swans Have Landed at a Pond or River Near You”.

Now for those of you who have always wondered why birds fly in a v-formation when they travel, well apparently scientist now know why. It’s all explained in this article and video entitled,  “Birds’ V-Formation Explained” over at the BBC News and Environment.

Fly away, flay away, fly away home!
