This blogpost is dedicated to all of those people who tut-tut darkly about starlings nesting in their rooves. I wager that they will never look at starlings in quite the same way again.
Just one more thing. Can art truly imitate life?
I think not. That little bit of avian showing-off, dear Hatpeople, is known as starlings doing a spot of murmuration. Murmuration? I’d love to murmurate with all of you. If only.
Nature’s got talent, hey?
* A big, murmurating, hat-tip to Jennifer Kestis Ferguson for the heads-up on wildlife cameraman Dylan Winter\’s majestic footage.
