Read with great interest the post on Starling Murmurations.
I had about a thousand of them in my garden  this year in the fall, and
because of the large number of trees in the garden, I could not take a
meaningful video.
The noise they made was truly deafening.  
However, I did take some photos and a few pics, when they rested on the
trees for just a little while before they took off again. 

Here is a photo – of some of them, at the local  Awenda Provincial Park
that is virtually a mile away from where I live. 
These flocks hung around in my area for a few days – and yes- it was a dark
cloud indeed – thousands of them.

  1. Thanks for the post Sam. I have seen a similar video before. However this is a marvelous natural phenomenon that can be watched over and over again. It is amazing that they fly so fast and never crash into each other.
