Re: 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.
