“This is really awesome. Wow What an experience.” These were my words when, I have seen flight of Rosy Starling for the first time in my life.
A Winter’s evening at Blackbuck National Park, Velavadar, A perfect Sunset. We were just returning from a wetland where we spotted few migratory birds. Then black tiny dots on the horizon, getting bigger and closer. A tornado of bird does something extraordinary. Like fireworks. I haven’t expected this. It was really surprising.
This is one of the finest winter offerings: flight of the Rosy Starling A starling murmuration.
I have seen lots of pictures and videos of Rosy Starling murmuration but never witnessed it in real life.
