How Is A Bird Able To Propel Itself Forward So Quickly Even When Theres No Wind?
every day i see the tiniest little birds going from a standing still position to full forward flight,like from zero to 30 mph in about 1 second! and there is no wind blowing at all,none! how are they able move forward so effortlessly and so quickly,they arent jet propelled and they arent rocket powered either,i notice the "little" birds can do this,but the larger birds arent able to

Same way tiny fish can shoot forward suddenly over a short distance, whether there is a current or the water is still.

Flatulence is the expulsion through the rectum of a mixture of gases, thus propelling the birdies forward through the air.

by flapping their wings up and down and at AN ANGLE they create a "bernoulli" effect.

By creating negative air pressure in front of them and increasing the pressure behind them, naturally the bird can fly.

Its just how an airplane works just at a different angle.

Are people this fucking stupid?

Lemme guess you think helicopters fly because they "push" themselves? LOL

NO the suck themselves forwards.

The use ground effect to hover smoothly but they can hover at almost any altitude below 10,000 feet

Wow

Imagine how you swim through a pool. Before you start the act of swimming, the water is motionless, but as you move your arms and legs through it, you displace the water around you, producing forward momentum.

Thats what a bird experiences. All around the bird is "air" compressed at 14psi. When the bird flaps its wings, it displaces the air around it, producing forward momentum.
