16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Murmuration of Starling Birds

A murmuration of starling birds is an amazing sight of swooping mass of thousands of birds whirling in the sky above. They are truly one of nature's greatest spectacles. Murmurations remind us that nature’s beauty can take limitless forms and inspire us. It's an awe-inspiring yet humbling first-hand experience of nature. Do you see a whale formation of birds? This shot was taken at our local park - Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area at dusk.
