Tayla, wonderful blog today, I never knew about the air movement in birds🤗

John Ridgewell

it fascinates me to look at say a swift in flight and what appears to be a rapid speed.
Any idea how fast a small bird like a swift does fly?

Fascinating- I truly learned more about how birds fly from your blog. I had wondered about their lung capacity and how they could sustain flying such long distances. Thank you!

A very interesting blog Tayla. Loved the explanation of the feather distribution and its purpose. Have often wondered what it would be like to be a bird and what they think of us as they look down. Also I like to see them go around in circles without once flapping their wings – I guess they are in some sort of wind tunnel. Fascinating subject. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Be well and stay safe.
