This Swarm of Birds Moves Around Like Some Sort of Dark Magic Cloud

I love murmurations or bird swarms or flocks of starlings or whatever the heck you want to call them because from far away they look like they’re shapeshifting in the air with the help of dark magic. It’s like seeing an unreal special effect only it’s made up of thousands of birds.

Marco Campazas captured the footage of these birds and to see them bend and curve and twist and take on different shapes is pretty glorious.

In Planet Earth II they highlight the Starlings and their murmurations in Rome, they also list off a very troubling statistic as a result of all the Starlings on the city.

So shocking was the information that it gives one pause for ever travelling to that city in the future.
