Jackdaws flap their wings to save energy

For the first time, researchers have observed that birds that fly actively and flap their wings save energy. Biologists at Lund University in Sweden have now shown that jackdaws minimise their energy consumption when they lift off and fly, because the feathers on their wing tips create several small vortices instead of a single large one. The discovery could potentially be applied within the aeronautical industry.

Birds that flap their wings actually SAVE energy

Researchers at Lund University found that jackdaws minimize their energy consumption because their wing tip feathers create several small vortices - a circular pattern of rotating air. ...
