Why Do Birds Fly in "V" Formation?

On our morning rides, Jeff Wong and I pass one point that has recently been covered with geese resting on their migration south. We've been wondering why here? and Why a "V"?

Well, one out of two ain't bad.

Don't you love trivia too? The book 'Nature's Flyers'was writtten by Steven Vogel, 'vogel' being the Dutch and German word for 'bird'.
