Excellent way to spend 2 minutes of your life: Flight of the starlings video

Reminded me of Winged Migration, so I bought a copy (used, because I'm cheap) for the grandkids.


  1. How do they keep from bumping into each other?

  2. Tippie Hedren's worst nightmare!

  3. Ornithologists have studied the flocks which do this in the Peak District of England; they reckon the largest flights number about half a million starlings. Why don't they collide? Greased lightning reflexes. They constantly adjust their position to keep a clear space between them and the birds around them - but it still has a touch of magic when you watch them do their stuff.
