Photostory: A flock of starlings

(Note: All the images in this journal are clickable for closer view)

Yesterday evening, a huge flock of starlings (*) decided to gather in the large tree near our balcony.

There were hundreds of them, maybe thousands (how do you count something like this?) and as smaller flocks continued joining, they became ever more…

…till the tree was filled to the brim with a twittering, babbling, noisy crowd of birds.
An ad hoc mass-gathering of starlings… It was such an exciting view! :D

They stayed for a little while, two, three minutes maybe, and then they left again, …

…in the light of the setting sun…
