No Murmuration here.
No starling swarm,
Sweeping across the sky like a ribbon wrapping around on itself.
Just one starling,
Fluffing its star-studded feathers to keep out the cold.
Happy to have the feeder to itself.
Wondering, perhaps, if it has come here too early,
When Spring is nowhere in sight.
I've added a link to a video of a real Murmuration of Starlings
(a flock flying together.)
What I like most about this video, aside from the spectacular sight of the cloud of birds in flight is the expression of wonder on the girl's face at the end of the video. I know I'd feel exactly the same way she does.
I'm not a huge fan of the addition of music tracks over the sounds of nature, but, then again, it's not my video and you can always mute it out :)
