Starlings are one of the most numereous birds in the world and extremely gregarious. Outside the breeding season they gather in flocks of hundred of thousands of birds. This quality adds up to one of natures most spectacular views, Starlings flying in a flock. One of the reasons Sturnus vulgaris exhibits this behavior is to shy off predators. The vastness of the numbers leaves every Falcon disoriented, there is simply no way to lock on to a specific target. Survival is in the numbers. In my opinion it also serves as a way to act like one giant organism, again to scare off attackers. At PoB we present to you some video’s exhibiting the beauty of large numbers. All these video’s originted from youtube.
