Breathtaking Murmurations Of Starlings

A flock of starlings is called a murmuration. For some it may look as a romantic spectacle of nature, others associate it with a horror movie scene, while for street sweepers it just means a lot of crap to clean. The way they all suddenly change direction or speed still remains the secret of nature, but there are theories to support both the scientific and the supernatural side of it.
No matter what, it's a magical sight which occurs in February and November.
