What a wonderful testimony birds offer to the brilliance of our Creator! This is the Creation Moments Minute.
Pilots have been carefully taught the precise actions they must take to successfully land an airplane. Well, without any training, young birds do this very same thing every day. High-speed photography has revealed that birds follow each one of these sequences as they approach and land. First, as they prepare to land, they slow their speed and increase their lift by extending and lowering the front part of the wing. Then, to slow even more, they angle their body from a horizontal flying position to a more upright angle. Finally, they drop the feathers on the back of their wing to settle nicely on a tree branch, with virtually no effort at all.
Yes, the principles of flight, refined by over a century of man’s experience, were simply taught to the birds by our loving Creator.
