Murmurations: Incredible Footage of a Flock of Birds in Ireland [VIDEO]
With so much content on the Internet, it’s a rare moment when something actually gives you goosebumps. This video was posted by Sophia Windsor Clive and Liberty Smith on Vimeo, artfully documenting a moment they experienced while canoeing the River Shannon in Ireland. They witnessed a murmuration, which is the term describing a flock of starlings*.
Watch the video to see why that definition doesn’t begin to describe what they witnessed.
