Morning Murmurations

Driving home from an early morning workout at the local gym, I saw it. A huge flock of birds dancing and dipping in the sky. A black ribbon of feathers, dancing to the beat of some music I wasn't hearing. 

Last fall was the first time I had spotted this phenomena called murmuration. The dictionary attributes this to a flock of starlings. I had originally thought these birds were migrating, but I don't believe starlings are migratory, so maybe they're just showing off for the ones flying South. God has a sense of humor.

Check out the video from England. Many more birds than I saw.
