The Murmuration of Starlings

This is a wonderfully captured video of a ‘murmuration’ of starlings in flight and it really captures the natural beauty of their movements, flying and turning in the air, almost like a single living entity.

Two solid write ups on the scientific properties of their flights if you’re interested, they can be found here and here (with video).

Mathematical analysis of flock dynamics show how each starling’s movement is influenced by every other starling, and vice versa. It doesn’t matter how large a flock is, or if two birds are on opposite sides. It’s as if every individual is connected to the same network.
