Beginning in the fall, starlings form large flocks and seem to do everything together.
They even fly together, managing to manoeuvre in a collective mathematical synchrony that still baffles researchers today. This is called a “murmuration.”
We saw a small version of this today.

I have walk leader Gabriel’s permission to share the report and photos from my trip to Saskatoon.
Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves! – Humbert Wolfe (1885–1940)
Thanks for the landscape photography! Don’t get me wrong–I love your pictures of birds, ducks, plants, and everything that goes with it. But I’m also a sucker for beautiful scenery, so I appreciate it when beautiful fall scenery is part of your post, and it’s gorgeous right now!
