Exactly! My older girls really hold the flock together ~ & it's very noticeable with so many flighty birds in it. They really calm down & become easier more quickly under the headship of Luna & the Brs, who are all really calm birds & not overly bossy.The change in Donk after her sister got killed was very noticable. Some seem more effected by the loss of a flock mate than others.
Some, like with Gedit, the whole tribe goes to pieces for a while.
I dread to think what will happen when Fat Bird dies.
