Enormous Flock of Starlings Makes Spectacular Art in the Air

 

Growing up in the mystic Michigan peninsula as I did, I’ve seen more than my fair share of alarmingly large flocks of birds. However, I’ve never seen anything that compares to this murmuration, which twists and turns through the air as a living ocean wave. Though starlings are tiny and harmless on the ground, seeing that many in the air makes me a little nervous.

Thankfully, I can watch these acrobatic starlings from the comfort of my own home thanks to the intrepid camera work of Sophie Windsor Clive. Head on past the break for a video.
