There isn’t a consistent leader in a flock. The leader switches from individual bird to individual bird, as they make decisions that follow rules in response to their interactions with neighboring birds in the flock. Wayne Potts did a research study on how flock movements are coordinated and initiated. He found that any individual can initiate a movement, which then waves out throughout the flock. However, birds usually only respond to birds that bank into the flock, preventing them from becoming separated or attacked by a predator.
