* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Though the flock has [[spoiler:arrived in Africa,]] the impressive trees dotting the landscape bear an uncanny resemblance to Grandidier's baobab, ''Adansonia grandidieri''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adansonia_grandidieri]], which is a species native not to Africa, but Madagascar. The two baobab species native to Africa, ''A. digitata'' and ''A. kilima'', don't grow as tall. This change was most likely done to boost the visual appeal of the flock's home region.

* ShownTheirWork: When the flock [[spoiler:arrive in Holland,]] a region on the west coast of what is officially the Netherlands, they [[spoiler:stop to rest in a tree hotel near the Norwegian Sea.]] Numerous windmills can be seen spinning in the background.

Added DiffLines:

* FaceYourFears: All the members of the flock, Sam included, are under the impression that planes, which they call "iron birds," eat birds. Towards the end of the film, Sam realizes that they "eat" humans and "spit them out" somewhere else unharmed. He convinces the flock that the planes pose no threat and eventually they board one.

Added DiffLines:

* EarnYourHappyEnding: Yellowbird's unorthodox plan to [[spoiler: ride the iron bird proves to be the correct call, as it gives the flock a free ride to their destination.]] Despite all the misfortune the flock endured on their long journey, much of which he was to blame for, [[spoiler:they make it to Africa safe and sound. Yellowbird earns his new name, Sam, and is forgiven by the other flock members. Last, but not least, Sam and Delf presumably become a couple.]]
