With every flap of its wings, the lead bird in a flight of Canada geese is breaking through a wall of air, creating a swirling vortex that provides a push for each follower. Some estimates show that geese in a V-formation can fly as much as 70 percent farther than they could fly alone. It’s exhausting work for the lead bird, but Canada geese have an answer to that, too: they take turns. When the leader drops back, another takes its place. Like the goose, we hope our troop leaders remember that they are not alone and that by working together they can achieve wonders.
