Starling Murmuration

via swissmiss
“A short film that follows the journey of two girls in a canoe on the River Shannon and how they stumble across one of nature’s greatest phenomenons; a murmuration of starlings.”

/merr'meuh ray"sheuhn/, n.
1. an act or instance of murmuring.
2. a flock of starlings.

Watch the video here. I have been fortunate to have seen and heard such a murmuration locally at Millbrook Marsh as a late autumn day draws to a close.
