This brief footage is absolutely extraordinary. I’ve seen small flocks of starlings doing this before but nothing like this.
The murmuration begins at around 26 seconds but I was also fascinated by the fact that these two women are canoeing in the weather and through the terrain that they are. I’ve almost always experienced the most wonder and awe…seen the most unusual, even miraculous, things…when I’m out in inclement weather, or twilight or dark, or intense cold, or in other conditions that keep most people away.
I’m not sure why that is actually. Kind of curious.
Anyway, if you have two minutes, watch and marvel. It’s truly something to behold.
