Why? Why do birds fly? Why are birds along with bats and insects one of the only three life forms which fly?
When you come to think about it, when you inquire deeper into it, it's not essential birds fly in order to move. Even without flying, birds can already walk, run, swim, crawl, hop, slide, glide, and slither. So why, in addition to having already perfectly good mechanisms for getting themselves from place to place, do birds fly?
It's a question which has always fascinated me. I've pondered it many times, coming up with different scenarios on various occasions to account for this anomaly. I've posed lots of reasons why birds fly - many, many reasons in fact. And what I've noticed is the list of reasons you can come up with why birds fly is seemingly endless if you're creative enough. Yet in spite of how many perfectly valid reasons why birds fly I can come up with, none of them has grabbed me as the definitive reason why birds fly. No "Eureka!" moment for me here yet. No "A-Ha!" insight for me here yet. And so I stayed in the inquiry: why do birds fly? Why?
Well ... it's taken me a while but I've finally figured it out! I know now why birds fly and it's totally awesome! I'm inspired by it enough to want to climb to the top of a craggy cliff high above a blustery beach and shout it out in the face of the ocean wind.
