Yes, Murmuration, is a real word. It is defined as a flock of Starlings. The following video is not special fx but a special treat, two very lucky canoers experienced this incredible act of nature and may have the best video ever seen of this natural phenomenon. Skip to the 25 second mark to get past the photos – the video is amazing.
A chance encounter and shared moment with one of natures greatest and most fleeting phenomena.
