  • Got it from another site. It's called a murmation. Finally got a link:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... -BIRD.html

    Perfectly timed picture captures the moment a murmuration of starlings took the form of a giant BIRD

    A photographer claims to have captured the perfect moment a murmuratuion of starlings took the form of a giant bird.

    Daniel Biber, 53, said he captured the breathtaking snap in Spain, after observing thousands of birds and scouting locations over a four-day period.

    Like clouds in the sky, the giant flocks often take on weird and wonderful - and sometimes graphic - moving forms and shapes.

    And the birds appeared to have made for a startling spectacle when they assembled over the Costa Brava in northeastern Spain, in front of Mr Biber's eyes.


    There are a couple of more images there.

  • Murmurations are so transfixing to watch. How in tune one is to the next. Nature's ultimate "Synchronized Swimming" so-to-speak. Not long ago I was watching a video where all these people were taking footage of what they believed was some organic ET/UFO phenomenon. I took one look at the video and said "That is a Starling Murmuration".

    Most often, one doesn't have to think outside our planet for a terrestrial phenomenon that looks extraterrestrial.

  • Agreed, Aros - totally amazing. I wonder what flocks of passenger pigeons must have looked like.

    One of Adelaide's AFL teams (the national Australian football league), the Adelaide Crows, advertise with computer-generated flocks of crows, with their slogan "We Fly as One."

    BTW, the Crows have a "19th Man" theme, borrowed from the Seahawks' 12, and a couple of players visited the Seahawks' training facility a couple of years ago and presented Pete Carroll with a Crows guernsey.

    Yep. I may fall into the "Believer" camp when it comes to the ET phenomenon but I am firmly in the belief that 95% of everything classified as a "flying saucer" is normal terrestrial phenomenon. Sorry I don't mean to hijack. Back to the topic, I have always been so mesmerized by those murmurations. I could watch those for hours.

    That's really cool, thanks for sharing!
