Murmuration

•Hundreds even thousands of starlings flying together in a whirling, ever-changing pattern is  called murmuration.
•As starlings gather in the evenings to roost, often they will participate in what is called a murmuration — a huge flock that shape-shifts in the sky as if it were one swirling liquid mass. 374 more words
