I`m an American wildife rehabilitator that has raised many orphaned & injured starlings.They are amazing,intelligent birds and I even own a handicapped one that can talk,put sentences in context,whistle"Old MacDonald" and imitate the sounds of other species of birds I rehabilitate.He also barks like our dog.They play with toys,are very inquisitive and are a very under-rated,under-appreci ated bird in my country.

Funny comments to this amazing video... Today I have learned that all other countries besides the USA are capable of restraint (especially at your football matches), and that Europeans are incapable of identifying sarcasm... I mean honestly, the give away is in the name "ugly American" Come on..Sheeesh.. Have your pub brew tested for formaldehyde content, your brains are becoming pickled.

Isn't it interesting how all these comments are negative. No wonder so many people lead dull, boring & unhappy lives. Why not change to a more positive attitude & enjoy magical moments like this & share it with friends all over the world to bring more positive, happy experiences.

No, that would be only 'Ugly Americans' that would do that, people from other places respect that something's actually being recorded other than what they think they need to say about it.

Pretty girls out in nature! It's very attractive. There is nothing better than young, innocent and pretty girls who act naturally. They are definitely the kind you take home to introduce to Mom and Dad, and want to spend the rest of your life with. It would be perfect if they are good Catholics, too.

that last line is ridiculous. i understand that its cool when attractive girls are down to earth. though you dont know these particular girls. and "good Catholics?" come on man. what if they are Buddhist? or unsure of any particular religious affiliation? does that make them less attractive? a robust and honest spirituality comes from such a slew of religious backgrounds. "good Catholics" can be quite miserable human beings. athiests can be beautiful loving creatures. most people fall somewhere in between or to the side or upside down. though we are all God's people regardless of religious affiliation and the beauty displayed in this video is a testament to the glorious power of love.

While I totally agree that yelling is silly and spoils the awe and beauty of something as magnificent as this, I do think that such stereo types as your are just as ugly as anything you may be attempting to describe. There are uncouth and immature people all over just as your comment proves.

Always thought it was an exultation of starlings when they did this. Used to watch them do it in Essex when younger but haven't seen it in many years now.

Millicent (below) is correct; it is an exaltation of larks, and a murmuration of starlings, though cloud, dragon, congregation, and clutter of starlings are all used as well. These collective nouns are a lovely quirk of the English language. My favorite is "a wake of vultures."
