Besides some draft the pigeon is getting a boost from the ground effect part of the time by flying so low.
Great to see some carbon based life performing well as we watch the silicon based life evolve.

That is the busiest road in the Netherlands, I'm going to assume in the weekend (because otherwise the pigeon wouldn't need to do 100km/h to keep up with traffic; 15 or 20 would be enough). What strikes me as a former driver on that road who now regularly drives the 401 in Ontario is how organized everything is. Slow vehicles to the right, faster ones to the left, and no insane squirreling from one lane to the other because some idiot is blocking the lane. I'm pretty sure the overall throughput on the A2 is higher than on the 401.
