There is an old English saying which points how those of similar taste congregate in groups. You may find this phrase in the title of today’s post. I think it fits perfectly with today’s picture, do you agree? You can find more similar face illusions if you check the #face tag, meanwhile let me tell you more about the saying. Did you know that the first known citation found in print (of the currently used English version) appeared waaay-back in 1599. It was The Dictionarie complied by the English lexicographer John Minsheu. The language was little more stylish back then, so the original went something like this:

Birdes of a feather will flocke togither.

Birds of a feather flock together optical illusion

  • josephine

    It looks more face-ish smaller/farther away

    • happydoodle

      i saw the face first, then i realized they were all birds. the face is too noticeable, but its a really good illusion.

  • A Snail

    I agree with josephine, the gadget picture looks like a face, and the webpage picture looks like birds. Yet another illusion where size matters.

    Just don’t look up………..

  • Grace

    Is it just me or was this an easy one??

  • James Travis

    just a bit too obvious

  • peace-angel

    That is a truely scary face!!

  • Sj x

    I think this is really cool!!! i love these sort of illusions as they look really good and i think they are really creative!!! wish i could do something like that!!!

  • Toni

    I’m not sure how this is an optical Illusion. Surely you could draw any image just by placing a load of birds in the right place.

  • Rhiannon

    I saw it the first millisecond my eyes met it.

  • A

    I think it took some skill to work all of the birds into a face. I liked this one.

  • Jessica

    wow i dont even like “see” the birds; i need to concentrate so hard on them to simply see it as birds.

    okay-ish illusion, not the best, waaaay too obvious, and for those of you who cant see it instantly, it’s a long-haired woman’s face

  • Fred

    It is an illusion albeit somewhat mediocre. It would have been outstanding were it an actual untouched picture. In reality it would be rare for birds in a formation to be dispersed and oriented in such a way as to produce the same effect. Nevertheless it is in fact by definition an illusion.

  • Care Bear

    Interesting way to give someone the bird.

    How do I submit things to the owner of the website??

  • Dawn

    IT LOOKS LIKE A YOUNG KATE BUSH.

  • Valerie

    Although this is a obvious illusion. It’s still a clever idea. Really like it.

  • thrisha

    omg i love this

  • Zeb

    when you see birds flying south in a V shape and one side is longer, Do you know Why?

    A. There are More birds on that side

  • Jake

    I saw the face immediately
