Murmuration of Starlings

Murmuration of Starlings

I love this video.  I’d like to thank

YouTube and Illustra Media for sharing it.  

The reason is it rings very true to me, is it reminds me of a time when I was doing the Mr. Wizard show traveling from the big cities in the Eastern half of the US, to a little town, to another little town, driving across the back roads of the USA.

The smallest town I went to was out in Minnesota. I think, if I remember correctly(it was a long time ago)think they had 5 people in that little town, although during The Great Recession I had seen a TV program or video about a person with one person in the town.

In the Fall I would always see this site and, always wondered what it was.  To my surprise no one knew.  Eventually, and I do not remember how I learned it, but I learned they were starlings.  

I sometimes describe these starlings flocks later I learned they were called murmurations, as sparrows, but no they are definitely murmurations of Starlings and how cool is it that this phenomenon happens, well at least in The USA and London.  I wonder where else this phenomenon happens?

If you like writing about cool nature phenomenon and would like the potential to be paid for it listen to David Wood our founder tell you how to do it:
