Starling Murmuration – A Beautiful Bird Ballet In The Sky [Video]

Sometimes nature provides us with an event that beats any Hollywood special effect.

This is a case in point. A mesmering murmuration of starlings.

The starlings are generally a highly social family. Most species associate in flocks of varying sizes throughout the year. A flock of starlings is called a murmuration.

The film crew were shooting a commercial in Marseille, France, waiting for a helicopter flying into the sunset, when thousands and thousands of birds came and made this incredible dance in the sky.

They described what happened next:

“It was amazing, we just forgot our job and started this little piece of poetry…”
