Safety in numbers October 4, 2013 / Rebecca “If one bird foraging in a flock on the ground suddenly takes off, all other birds will take off immediately after, before they even know what’s going on. The one who stays behind may be prey.” ~Frans de Waal Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related

Good capture of so many birds.
Thanks! I don’t think my husband likes this photo because it makes him think of the movie “The Birds”. 🙂
Hi. We have crows flocking by the thousands on our University campus. They say it is a great strategy … unlikely a predator will pick you off when there are so many …. Jane
They can be a health problem when so many congregate in the city or neighborhoods, but out in the fields they are quite interesting to watch.
Great timing, great shot, Rebecca!
