  1. Good Morning Cynthia! I saw this video last week introduced to me by another blog friend who by the way loves birds and I was amazed. It was magical and I fell in love with the word “murmuration”. Is that not just the most beautiful word. I also fell in love with those two sweet crazy girls. Magical I tell you, magical 🙂 Thank you for another look this morning!

      I like “murmuration” – it’s fun to say! I always liked a “murder of crows” too. I had this experience one summer down on the New Jersey shore – the same amazing acrobatics as in the video but not nearly that many birds. It was a totally cool sight though.

    That is just gorgeous! I almost forgot to breathe as well.

      Looking at it again I can only be glad that I love birds. Can you imagine seeing Hitchcock’s “The Birds” shortly before heading out on that little boat?

    Stupendous and adorable, at the same time. Wow.

    Only trouble is, round these parts we have a murmuration of grackles. Evening after evening after evening. Watching the thousands of them beating away on the wing, on the flyway, I get a little of that sense of swooping soaring cloudlike power — and, but, but, argh, then, there comes the roosting, and the incredible hoarse screeching cacophony, and the — the — gallons of stuff — landing splat on my car, mucking up the windshield — I feel like I need to put on a chemsuit to approach the danged thing, let alone get in it . . . .

    Still. If I were with a friend, in a little boat on the wind and the water . . . . JOY!
