Lovely lovely footage of a "murmuration of starlings". It's just incredible.

WOW. That is breathtaking. Just the noise from the birds wings is overwhelming. Must have been fantastic but at the same time so very eerie to witness that live, at such close range.

 

Thanks for sharing BallS.

Nothing came up when I tried to look at it just now. Got the home page and picture but nothing downloads. I will keep trying.

 

Wow! I managed to view it this morning and it is a stunning video. Thanks, BAS.

It truly is worth trying!

 

My folks told me about a similar phenomenon on the KZN south coast with swallows - sadly the extensive wetland systems which hosted the migrant swallows have since been developed!

It truly blew my mind, this video - how sad that development has caused the demise of being able to see such an amazing sight. I remember as a kid seeing HUGE flocks of swallows (not nearly to the video's amount of birds :sad2:) but still, pretty large flocks. I never thought about it until I saw this video that I (having lived on farms and very far-out places for most of my life) have not seen anything like those flocks I saw as a child. Very very sad...

I saw this when I was in Rome, not so many million birds, though, just thousands. A benediction of birds. Awesome.
