Sophie Windsor Clive and Liberty Smith were out paddling on the River Shannon in Ireland when they happened upon one of nature’s greatest spectacles – a murmuration of starlings! A murmuration is when hundreds to thousands of the birds flock together and dart through the sky in dazzling formations. It’s thought the birds’ beautiful movements are purely out of defense against predators, like falcons.
One thing for sure, it’s mesmerizing to watch. The young women were so lucky to witness something so amazing! I wish I had been there myself.
Share this aerial spectacle with your friends and family so they can enjoy this rare sight too!
