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!💜💜💜😂

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?

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.

Could I say that the birds make decisions and we can model them with math?
developer nine
developer nine Před 2 měsíci
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."

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.

Heika Před 2 měsíci
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.

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.

Gerard Janssen
Gerard Janssen Před 3 měsíci
In a mathematical equation To follow a motion, it isn't too difficult to formulate that. The tricky part would be to know what exactly influences each bird. A few things come to mind, do they start off that way by instinct, like confusing a predator. What other factors are there? Following the others? Air flow from other birds? Distance between each other? Keeping a velocity and by what means , actual speed relative to ground or air? Keeping close as a group? You would have to be the bird to know and feel what he does. Very interesting indeed.

Hey, Destin! I hit you up on Facebook messenger via the smarter every day page. Ive noticed something peculiar happening with a hole in a hose. Its doing this weird thing where it wraps around the circumstance of the hose in a laminar type flow. I thought you might be able to help me math it out to see whats going on here. I sent you some videos through Facebook, and I have uploaded a video of it on here too. Its the only video ive ever uploaded, so finding it should be easy. If anyone at all can help me figure this out via comments here or on my video, I would greatly appreciate it! Lets get smarter every day!

There's a thing about birds that's most interesting other than flying, and that's they have their own court like rules , especially crows ,if they found a crow guilty, it'll get attacked just like police works in our system. So,they have a systematic way to make decisions.
