my friend and i were driving along in my car the other day,
when we noticed a good many birds taking flight into the evening sky.
she was startled by their seemingly synchronized movements and the way their
bodies flashed erratically across the sky, creating one great undulating mass-
but i have known birds to behave this way and even recalled a video
i had watched before where they did the same thing. there was even a word for
what they were doing. but what?
the word i was reaching for was... murmuration.
and thanks to the power of google, here is the video i happened
to watch on someone's blog, some time last year.
nature is beautiful, isn't it?
