A friend sent me this video of hundreds of starlings flowing together in the air.  Seeing this… I feel like I am there witnessing a rare and beautiful event.  It is incredible that these are birds… and leaves me speechless.  I am thankful for the amazing windows into nature happening all around the world through cameras.

People have long wondered how Starlings manage their incredible patterns of flight with out crashing into each other.  Researchers have discovered that each starling interacts with six or seven other birds irrespective of the distance of these seven birds.  Since each bird is flying in relationship to the 7 birds around them they all can shift direction quickly within a huge flock.
