I really hate to disagree with Morgana, but it's simply not true that the only bird that can fly backwards is the humming bird. In Australia, most of the birds of the desert areas fly backwards, to keep the dust out of their eyes. Dreamtime - you'll back me up on that? You must have seen them over there in west Australia!

How interesting and thanks JohnnieWalker, I shall have to enlighten my garden friends and Gill in New Zealand who cares for injured birds over there of this. I knew of some other birds using the aid of wind to fly backwards but not naturally like the humming bird. I don't mind you disagreeing with me 😁 I've learned something new. Seems your friend in Perth has deserted you.😞 Edited by member, 6th Dec 2014 10:29 am

So very true, although I have not studied bird antics here in the west, there is one I am told that sometimes flies upside down - obviously migrated from the UK maybe. So if there is a bird enthusiast looking in I would be interested to know all about such a bird. It's the magpies we have to watch, they swoop down on you to protect their young when nesting. Wave

The incredibly handsome Chad Morgan - one of Australia's great musicians - explains it in this Youtube - The Black Crow Flying Backwards. Big grin Big grin Big grin [Sorry Morgana - pulling your leg this time!]

😄😀😜😂 You naughty man pulling my leg. At least it's all in fun, not like one physio once pulled me out of bed to floor by my leg I had operated on two days after hip op which brought me to a different kind of tears.

Thank you Morgana, I was sure I was not dreaming. Those geese actually look as if they are having fun. Wave
