Starling Murmuration

Early evening, just before dusk is the best time to see these amazing thousands upon thousands of Starling Murmurations birds creating a remarkable display of motion, shapes, movements, incredible speed of changing directions in a fraction of a second and it all done as a teamwork. I can’t help to stop and think of how each bird know what to do, how to move, and of course the risk of colliding off each other. It left me in the awe-inspiring moment to witness an extraordinary natural phenomenon.
