Birds (flying) in Langton's ant

A non trivial history displays a global behavior as birds (flying) in Langt=
on's ant. The initial condition displays two ants in a volume of 19x38 cell=
s. First ant (upper right side) walking to the north. Second ant (lower lef=
t side) walking to the south, where other seven cells are label in dark plu=
s the ant. Period of this pattern appear later of 13,961 generations. So, f=
our pairs of these ants are coded to illustrate this pattern.

Frequently, these kind of patterns emerging in Langton's ant are with symme=
tric trajectories. An interesting fact in this evolution is that the second=
 ant (lower left) can walk on the area defined from the first ant before to=
 return to its trajectory. To see this effect speeds should be manipulated.=
 This simulation is performed with Golly. Specific initial condition is:

(.^18)1
33 rows in stable state
0XX
XXX
X.X
...1

X means labeled cells.
1 ants
.. stable state
