Why do birds form flocks?

Birds travel in flocks for protection. They flock to avoid predators. More eyes watching means it's harder for a cat or a hawk to catch the birds off guard. And they flock to find food.

One bird sees the food, a second bird sees the first one eating, and joins in, then a third bird sees the first two, etc.

How do flocks of birds turn together?

Birds, like fish, form flocks or shoals to minimise being picked off by predators. To do this, they maintain close proximity eye contact with three or four of their nearest neighbours. As one or two birds start to turn, the individual will tend to stay closest to those animals that are making the same decision, thus maintaining the flock/shoal. There will be some animals that are slower on the uptake, or decide to follow another group and consequently there will be swoops and divergences within the flock/shoal. The sum total is a confusing mass moving in unison this way and that, making it difficult for the predator to pick off an individual.
