Birdie Factoids, as requested by Suzy and for all of us too

-Most birds (over 90 percent) stay with the same first partner and remain monogamous for life.

-Many birds fly in a V-formation which improves aerodynamics and saves energy as a flock using telepathy to stay in synchronized formation.

-Woodpeckers can peck twenty times a second.

-Some parrots in the wild fly over 500 miles a day searching for food.

-The Mocking Bird can imitate the sounds of forty other birds.

-Owls can rotate their heads 180 degrees, Snowy Owls almost a full 360.

-An Emu can run up to 30 mph (45 kmh).

-The Albatross has an average wing span of 14 feet (4.2 meters), needs to land only twice a year in order to mate, they can fly hundreds of thousands of miles per flight, they can sleep while flying even at a speed of 25 mph.

-An Ostrich can grow to be nine feet tall.

-A Flamingo can only eat when their head is upside down.

-The Spine-tailed Swift can fly up to speeds of 220 mph and more.

-The hummingbird can fly straight up and down and backwards.

-Penguins can jump six feet in the air.

-Birds do not sweat.

-The Arctic Tern migrates from the Arctic to Antarctica and back covering more than 20,000 miles.

-The dove is the symbol of love and also an albino pigeon.

-The duck's 'quack' does not echo as other audible sounds do and nobody can explain the reason. That old duckie magic.
