How to take a photo like this?
1

This photo below is not mine, I saved it from a site and the photographers are called btleventhal. I'm not posting it because it's a particularly great photo, though it is nice. But using it as an example to ask how would I take a photo like it.

As all the birds are in focus, where would I place the focal point (where would the photographer have placed his) to keep all the birds in focus? Does it not matter as long as it's on any one of the birds or would he have most likely focused on the highest bird at the front?
