Stunning Starling Murmuration Makes Shape of Bird Over Lake

A photographer in Westmeath, Ireland, captured stunning footage of a murmuration of starlings as they formed into the shape of a giant bird on Tuesday, March 2. Colin Hogg said he and a friend had been tracking starlings around Lough Ennell near the town of Mullingar for several weeks to find the perfect location to shoot footage of them. “We were mapping where they roost so we could find out exactly where they settle for a few nights and then set up positions for filming them,” he said. “We were delighted when we captured a unique shape in the sky after many weeks of boring shots. Literally the sky was alive.” Credit: Colin Hogg via Storyful
