    Re-record that with the theme music from "Jaws" and see how it changes the effect.:eek:

    I liked the video.
    I don't like Montana weather reports!
    Seaalki posted it NFR. You clicked the mouse! No self control?

    I have self control. You don''t know it's a video until you open up the thread. And I like Montana weather. At least my feet ain't webbed from all the rain you are getting. It just doesn't like me. The heat seems to sap all my strength. Of course getting more sleep every night probably would help this old body get around.

    Having seen these in person, I can honestly say its a sight to behold. Just one of the many things, that when you see it, you just sit there, mouth agape, thinking how wonderful nature is.

    Thanks for posting it.

    Makes one wonder how they don't collide . . . methinks music from "The Birds" might be appropriate?

    Beautiful effect on film.
    But for me that fact that these are starlings, not native to the U.S., and which I regard as pests, spoils it somewhat.
    We have flocks doing this sort of thing in eastern wa in the fall.

    I now know what mumuration is and, the video was cool. At first I was thinking they were bats.

    I have been fortunate to see this happen before. Only about 1/2 of the birds you got to watch>
    The thought at the time I witnessed this experience was "now I know the definition of DANCING ON AIR"
    So glad you shared the incredible moment.
