Birds are like people. Most of them flock together, whether flying, fishing, or just chillin. One might think that this is the normal protocol for birds and for humans. However, there is always an exception to the rule that is also perfectly "normal." Some birds are wired to fly solo. This is especially true when they are finding food. To be left alone to eat, is their preference. Is this odd? No, again it is the course of nature for some types of birds. Can this question be asked of humans? Absolutely, all though the "norm" may be for humans to be married, some may be wired to "fly solo" as well. Both have their benefits and drawbacks. It's beautiful and assuring to watch nature take it's course.
