Do birds rest by gliding?

    They can rest when gliding as they are not excerting as much energy flapping. Birds take advantage of upward movements of air called themals to gain elevation then glide downwards constantly on that upwards current of air. They can use these thermals to glide and soar for hours with minimal energy expenditure.
