I've written about murmurations in the past, back at my old digs. But they're still pretty much my favorite things ever. And while I don't necessarily love the musical accompaniment to this 9.5 minute murmuration video from The BBC's "Earth Unplugged" series, I love absolutely everything else about it. (I love the edited, VO-ed version quite a bit less, because it gets in the way of what I really want to do: watch and stare, with my jaw on the ground.)
This amazing phone footage shows an amazing murmuration of 70,000 starlings! Have you seen a murmuration? Share your sighting in this Starling survey!
