      I've ALWAYS wanted to know about this! Waves of birds NOT crashing! Just Stunning.

    7. Jonathan Bronco

      I wonder if the same or similar principles would apply if you watched a crowd of humans in an unguided situation like exiting a music festival.

    8. awsx

      Any numbers involved in nature's algorithms are prime. The same laws and ratios that align sunflower seeds will be surely be involved in some way to determine aspects of this flocking behaviour. Perhaps replacing the typical whole number slider for adjusting perameters with a fibonacci sequence slider or prime number slider would result in more accurate modelling attempts.

    12. Phoenix Vanguard

      Could it be that the smaller birds are often prey, and thus must hide in the flock to prevent predation, whereas the bigger birds are less concerned with being eaten and thus feel no need to constantly change direction?

    13. Dickie Brewer

      Maybe you've already done this, but I could watch a whole episode of you working with your kids.

    14. Vishal Yadav

      One parameter u missed was 3rd dimension....when the bords move towards or away from you they look denser......and less dense when they fly perpendicular to you vision. Add this to the simulation and it will look real.

      Getting drunk after following a bird for a minute.....

    18. Daniel DiBono

      1:53 I have no idea why the birds do this at this point. My mind just clicked to thinking the birds are following the air gusts that they feel. This in turn can guide the flock in general direction when they catch a consistent current or organize in a specific pattern. Edit; without research, my conjecture is that they resemble fluid flow because they are flying in a fluid.

    19. Mary Lagua

      😮 birds

    20. Travis Pendell

      "each bird is making a decision based on math". I don't think it's quite like that. The birds are following what they see, and the math just mimicks that.

      Is the boyd algorithm two dimensional?

    25. CandC68

      1- I assume the math / behavior works for schooling fish also. 2- As this behavior has evolved of long periods of time, how is it supporting survival? 3- I used to walk to and from a train station when commuting. In the evenings I would see a bunch of birds doing this. But as the sun went down, they began pealing off from the mass and flew down the large chimney of an old house. Like watching sand in an hour glass. That they all fit in there was amazing.

      I've filmed the Starlings in murmuration where I live. You are welcome to watch them fly in front of a full moon. Sadly I can't post a link to my channel but I'm not hard to find and they look cool.😀

      In the spring of 2020 i had to go spend a bunch of time on my family farm in Cherokee county AL. One of the most beautiful, fascinating things i have ever seen was the Cedar Waxwing migration. Large flocks landing in the fields eating dropped corn, soybeans, and whatever else. It's a curious thing to observe.

      Starlings form murmurations during migration. They roost without nests during that time. In summer, though, the adults will nest and raise one or two rounds of nestlings. During that season they will often nest near other starlings, but in much smaller colonies than the migration murmuration. We had a family nest in the corner of our roof last summer. The funniest part of that was our peafowl. One of our young peacocks was very curious about the nest, and he would occasionally poke his head into the area where they were nesting. Momma starling DID NOT APPROVE 😂 Watching a little starling tell off a peacock easily 100xs her size, and watching him sheepishly back off, was PRICELESS!💜💜💜😂

      Wish I had the kind of friends you do

    60. Jon Doe

      Why does it seem like sound is also a key factor into how these birds operate? I mean they start off in clumps and merge into a mass and sometimes disperse. That may have to do a number of things but could it be due to sounds as well? Could that be why they clump together?

    61. Matthew Stout

      I think that's called a murmuration isn't it?

    62. Mark Demell

      Man will never figure out the creators creation ,we can try though.

      1. darkisatari

        As Proverbs 25 says, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings [man] is to search it out.” So I think we can and are even expected to figure out more and more about the created world. Of course, the more we learn the more we realize is out there yet unlearned.

    75. Jesse Sanders

      Could I say that the birds make decisions and we can model them with math?

    76. developer nine

      It isn't they are making decisions *based* on math, it is that Math does in fact model what we see in nature. The reason math models what we do see things, and our brains work to generalize things. We do this all the time. Which is why we find models that describe what we see. What is amazing is that *our* design ... how we are built ... works to find these models all the time. When you see things like boids algorithm, or F=m*a ... or E=mc^2 ... we find the math model that works for the system. Why that is so neat to me is that it shows "we are fearfully and wonderfully made."

      this is the best video you've made and it wasn't recommended to me or shown to me and I've subscribed and belled. Tragic. also, if this was in the UK you would have been arrested for not having a bird watching loicense.

    84. Trevor Matthews

      Add a predator trying to single out one bird and it makes sense. Fish are masters at this. Actually my own theory about people is sort of similar. Imagine a rumour starts and it does the rounds on social media but no one is quite sure if it is true. You’ll get people clumping together, particularly with like minded souls. If you could model a rumour on social media, picking up extra bits of info at the boundary edges, then one group swoops near another group view and a new kind of shape emerges going in a new vector.

    87. Heika

      I thought of a way to increase the realism of the boids algorithm in 2 dimensions. You could replicate the z-dimension by using a variable that changes the area/size of each individual "bird", such that they want to match the size/area of the birds in its visual field. Then you could replicate the change of the birds profile that you see when birds fly towards/away from you, compared to when they fly up/down and side-to-side.

    88. Hanyang Lee

      When I was a child, I was taught that birds are free. Now I was told, birds make decisions by math. So, question is, is free will really a thing?

    89. therealxunil2

      99% of birds are lazy sobs who don't even have jobs. They don't work at all.

    92. Jay Sims

      Mermaration? Excuse the spelling.

    93. Ron Simpson

      I am writing a science fiction book using this principle for drone fighters in space. This is what I discovered. First, why do they flock? Small birds and fish avoid predators. The larger birds don't flock the same way, not just because they are larger and their flight characteristics are different, but because they are not avoiding predators. Because there are so many variables, it seems completely random, but there are patterns to it, if you look close enough. First a unit moves in the same direction as their neighbors. Second, they remain close to their neighbors and third, avoid collisions with their neighbors. Modify that model using concentric zones for alignment, attraction and repulsion and you get an even better model.

      I mean I dont the birds make their decisions based on math I understand what your saying. The decisions they are making look similar to the algorithm
