Thank you for posting this. I've seen it in my Facebook feed but never made the time to click on it. Glad I stopped her and took the time to check it out!
Wow. That's really cool, and a little eerie. When they coalesce, they remind me of the smoke monster.
That was amazing and gave me chills too. WOW
I think something about this phenomenon was airing on Discovery or some channel way up in the 100's. It's a pretty amazing thing, and this video really makes it even cooler.Peace <3Jay
This was absolutely amazing. Thanks for sharing it.
I meant to say (and forgot) that it's called a murmuration. Very rare. Very cool.
...Yes, an ellipsis. That is all.
I love when birds do this, but I've never seen it on such a grand scale. Thanks so much for posting this!Andrea
Absolutely beautiful! I had to share it too, especially with my husband. Thank you for posting this!
Boy, God sure did know what he was doing! Beautiful!
Sorry, sorry, I can't be the only one to find this scary, right? Nobody else was scarred by the movie Birds? No? I'll go hide my head and think of ponies or something now.
I once watched a flock of birds maybe 1/4 the size of this one do this sort of thing and it was so cool I stopped in the middle of my day and watched it for about 20-30 min but with a flock of birds this size it's way more amazing.
That is amazingly beautiful! I wonder WHY the starlings do that?I must confess to also wondering if all those birdies left any little presents on the heads of the watchers... :-)
I'm guessing that it's a result of their flocking habits.They're like schools of fish in that everybody follow everybody.Since there's no leader, the murmuration (and many schools) travel in a random manner.Since everybody is following, the direction passes through the murmuration like a wave as everybody responds to everybody.-will m
Took my breath away.
