Murmuration: Thousands of Starlings Move as One

(Video link HERE.) In this homemade video of murmuration, thousands of starlings flock over a river in Ireland, moving as one. It is a mystery of nature, happening in smaller scale daily, often unnoticed. Each bird in the flock appears to be connected…listening to every other. The mystery is how birds that are hundreds of feet apart “know” when to turn in unison and create such joyous beauty.
