Murmuration

Murmuration is a flock of starlings , those little birds we can see , from time to time, performing a weird choreography as if they were moved by the invisible strings of a superior being. It’s also a low continuous indistinct sound, the same you can hear when they approach you taking your breath away.

    Wow wow wow,as Mr Jobs said. You can see it every day at sunset here in Ponfe. A cloud of starlings (estornino pinto) that rest after its aerial dance in Plantio´s park. Sometimes you can see a falcon fliyng around, one of the reasons for the choreography

    I’ve also seen some flocks of starlings these last days but near my mum’s house. Anyway, the dancers were not so proficient as the ones in the video. Beautiful!
