Some birds, at least, keep together on their migratory journeys, flying in tandem even when they are 200 meters or more apart. The study, from researchers at the University of Illinois and the Illinois Natural History Survey, appears this month in Integrative and Comparative Biology. It is the first to confirm with statistical data what many ornithologists and observers had long suspected: Birds fly together in loose...
