Murmuration of 

starlings rising in unison

twisting and turning

in incredible patterns;

Balletic coordination!

  1. Yes yes have you seen a flock of little birds do that.. It is mesmerising and wowow a beautiful scene..

    In our village we had two small dunes right in the end of our fields and in evenings there use to be the sparrow that would flock mullions and then on a slight noise they would all fly in a unison..

    1. Bikramjit you are lucky to have lived in a place where you have seen this. I have only seen seagulls flying in a flock. When i see such beautiful pictures, it leaves me awestruck so I can only imagine how beautiful it must be to see it.
