Why  so Geese Fly in V  Formation? click photo above
Click  Above Photo for this kind of goose!
In Klamath Falls  we see many goose  families out walking  just like this!!
YES  geese do also fly in long lines, do you know why they fly like this over long distances?
The geese above right are displayed origami!    The geese above left are also displayed origami geese!
How beautiful to see them flying at sunset.  Have you heard them honking to each other as they fly?
Here is a teaser!   Did you know that  LOONS also migrate?  Click the photo

Why ?      For visual sight of each other and the leader and maximum energetic advantage Flocks contain both experienced and new migrants, so communicating information about rest and feeding areas is vital. Flying in the lead is the most tiring position, so geese take turns at the head of the V in order to allow leaders to rest.

Did you know...  mature adult goose has 20 to 25,000 feathers. geese also use their bills to realign their feathers and reconnect any Velcro-like barbules that have become separated
1.When geese fly together, each goose provides additional lift and reduces air resistance for the goose flying behind it. Consequently, by flying together in a v-formation, scientists estimate that the whole flock can about 70% farther with the same amount of energy than if each goose flew alone. 
3.When a goose drops out of the v-formation it quickly discovers that it requires a great deal more effort and energy to fly. Consequently, that goose will quickly return to the formation to take advantage of the lifting power that comes from flying together. 
4.Geese rotate leadership. When the goose flying in the front of the formation has to expend the most energy because it is the first to break up the flow of air that provides the additional lift for all of the geese who follow behind the leader. 
5.Geese honk at each other. They also frequently make loud honking sounds as they fly together
