I love this video for so many reasons. First of all, I learned a fancy new word (murmuration) for the phenomenon that you see in the video. Secondly, nature is always amazing and I love seeing things like this. These two girls? They were so lucky to be there in the middle of it all, and I love how much they loved it. If you would like to learn more about the theory behind why Starlings act this way (and how they are able to do it), Wired has a great article on the topic: The Startling Science of a Starling Murmuration. Have you witnessed murmuration in person?
