Hypnotizing video captures thousands of starlings zigzagging as hungry falcon attacks

Starlings are known to flock together into mesmerizing groups called “murmurations,” and then swoop and dive together in synchronized acrobatics shows.

But this group of starlings — part of a murmuration of as many as 10,000 that has gathered in West Cork, Ireland — started doing particularly impressive aerial tricks earlier this month. It was caught on video by a group of local birdwatchers, too.
