Many birds migrate in flocks and bevies. This provides safety in numbers, since each individual is less likely to be attacked by a predator than if it were travelling alone.
Some, such as geese and cranes, travel in their family bevies inside larger flocks. Migrating flocks of small birds tend to be much more broadly scattered. Each one looks after itself, but they keep in touch other using contact calls, and may gather at roosts along the way.
