Birds In Sync-6 [Duplicate]

This June 30, 2010 photo shows three juvenile northern bald ibis birds in an aviary prior to release in Wadi Abiat, about 20 kilometers (16 miles) north of Palmyra in Syria. A new study released Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014 says the birds choreograph the flapping of their wings, getting a boost from an updraft of air in the wake of the flapping wings by flying behind the first bird and off to the side. When a flock of birds take advantage of these aerodynamics, they form a V. (AP Photo/Walldrappteam, Lubomir Peske)
