Murmuration

During the afternoon today we had a huge flock of European Starlings in the field across from our house.  I have never seen as many in one place before.    Their wings were very loud when they took off that sounded almost like a truck coming down the road!  We were both amazed.

This is a close up shot of a part of the group taken with my 400mm lens!

  1. so cool! although they raid the feeders with the blackbirds and grackles, i love to hear that ‘woosh!’ sound when they take off en masse!
