[chuck] in Art, Science, murmuration, starlings

A flock of starlings, a very large flock, is known as a "murmuration" when it swirls and twists and turns together through the sky. One such flock is shown in the video above flying over the River Shannon in Ireland. Phenomenal. [NOTE: Really nice camera work by these two independent filmmakers from London (Sophie and Liberty)].
