    OK well, if one is flying to the right of another then ... it stands to reason that the other is flying to the left of the first...

    Not to the research on Discovery Channel , they showed video .

    Think about though , imagine what your suggesting in the context of a huge flock ?

    The same way as human beings do not crash into each other while walking. Animals do not crash into each other while walking.

    The question gains importance on account of flight (incredulity), but birds are firm in their flight the same way as animals are firm in their walk.

    I'm interested in what you imagine is happening.

    In a flock of birds:
    - if bird A is flying to the right of bird B, then
    - bird B is flying to the left of bird A, AND
    - bird B CANNOT be flying to the right of bird A

    So I'm asking what this...

    "Actually they always fly to the right of each other ."

    ..actually means.
