"Murmuration" shows a fascinating and rare phenomena in nature

(CBS) - The phenomena of "murmuration", when huge flocks of birds ("starlings" to be exact) in migration form shape-shifting flight patterns, is a truly amazing wonder to behold. So let's all watch it happen in the video above. The phenomena gets phenomenal at about 50 seconds into the clip.

The video was posted by Vimeo user Sophie Windsor Clive who writes about the experience:

A chance encounter and shared moment with one of natures greatest and most fleeting phenomena.

A spectacular sight to watch unfold - thank you so much to Sophie for sharing this wonderful video with us and the world!
