Goose Riddle

How do geese know which goose to follow?



Front Goose

They follow the one in front. Haha.

Seriously though:


  • They fly slightly higher than the lead goose to benefit from the “lift” provided by the lead goose’s turbulence, saving energy.
  • They take turns leading so they can all benefit from that lift in turn.
  • Apparently they all “know the way.”
