WOW Starling Migration Pictures
Thanks for posting, those are awesome.
I have no pictures but I did experience a similar swarm of blackbirds while working in my woods a few years ago. It was late fall and I assume they were gathering for a trip to warmer climes. It was so cool to watch and listen. The sound made when the entire swarm changes direction in synchronized flight is hard to describe. A very loud and sudden whompff! Kinda like the surrounding air suddenly getting sucked through a huge hole. It was grand! Umm ... a lot of other "stuff" was dropping all around too - I quickly got a roof over my head.
