Flocking starlings

May 29, 2007

I found a couple videos of starlings flying in incredibly dynamic flocks. They seem to create one larger collective organism. I would love to see this in person some day.

This first video, from England, actually has some narration about the birds during the first half (if embedded video broken, click here).

This second video is much shorter and shot in Rome (if embedded video broken, go here).

Watching these complex patterns is simply mesmerizing. Enjoy!
