The collective motion of birds is studied numerically. The effect of the anisotropy mutual interaction parameter plays a vital role on the order parameter of the collective motion of biological groups like birds, fishes etc. It is found that, if the interaction with the elements in front of a given element is stronger than with those behind, then the system will move as a single unit.
Keywords: Bird, fly, collective motion, anisotropy parameter, disorder parameter.
