10 Million Starlings Swarming

In this footage from the 2009 BBC Earth special Superswarm, we get an up-close look at a mass of roughly 10 million starlings as they fly in formation over Rome, Italy. Of course, with millions of birds comes a whole lot of bird poop. We’d love to see a sequel recorded with modern 4k cameras.
