A bird that sleeps while flying is the Laysan Albatross, which dwells in skies above northern oceans (such as the Bering Sea.

Think logically A bird that would sleep flying would do so because it could not find a place to build a nest. Such a bird would fly over barren and empty terrain. Such a bird would be the Arctic swift , it breeds in Arctic and Antarctic and flies over Pacific ocean to get there. It needs to learn sleeping while flying :-)))
Any idea how to learn sleeping while working in office???? :-))

A bird that sleeps while flying is the Laysan Albatross, which dwells in skies above northern oceans (such as the Bering Sea.)

Once hatched, an albatross spends her life at sea, except to breed. "They are sometimes seen asleep on the water," says the Arctic Studies Center, a part of the National Museum of Natural History. "But this makes them easy targets for killer whales and stealthy hunters in kayaks; most albatrosses apparently sleep while gliding in the air."

The Laysan Albatross, one of the largest flying birds, has a wingspan greater than six feet (two meters), and, like all albatrosses, flies almost effortlessly. An albatross' heart rate while flying is almost the same as it is at rest.

Swifts are another possibility. Swifts eat, mate, bathe and, perhaps, sleep on the wing. Several thousands of feet up, radar observers in airplanes have monitored flocks of swifts spending the night aloft.
