A friend sent me this incredible video of a chance encounter and shared moment with one of natures greatest and most fleeting phenomena.
A murmuration, which this is, consists of thousands of tiny starlings (birds) collectively flying and swirling about. The mesmerizing act is typically seen at the beginning of winter, right before dusk, as the birds look for a place to roost for the night.

I highly suggest maximizing the screen to allow you to experience it as much as possible.
