Friends,


 


Something of wonder.


 


One of the most wondrous markers of the end of the day is a murmuration of
starlings

The flight of a starling flock at dusk, known as a murmuration, is one of
nature's most beguiling sights. Blurring the line between the individual and
the group, murmurations involve synchronised swooping patterns to ward off
predators and exchange information in a manner that's still something of a
mystery to scientists. This two-minute excerpt from the Dutch filmmaker Jan
van Ijken's short documentary  <http://www.janvanijken.com/?page_id=2260>
The Art of Flying follows a spectacular aerial performance from a massive,
shape-shifting starling flock over an open field in the Netherlands.

 

Director: Jan van Ijken <http://www.janvanijken.com/>
