Morning coffee: with a few starlings.

This is a post borrowed from my other blog. As you may know I am working on combining the two on here.  I thought that these two videos deserved another airing and they’re perfect to watch with a mug of morning coffee. Enjoy!

The starling: a beautiful (look at his colours) and very clever bird in his own right. But, put him with a few friends in the fall and they can do this:

Want more?

Unbelievable indeed. Quite how and why they do this seems to be a bit of a mystery. But, sometimes it makes nature’s spectacles all the more magnificent, when we don’t have all of the answers and we can just observe things like this…through child-like, wondrous eyes. We don’t know everything and that is okay.

It is one of my dreams to film a display like this one day. If I ever manage it, I will post it on here…I won’t be able to help myself.

Nature at its most amazing.

Many moons ago, I started to write. But, as life twisted and turned the only thing I got to write was letters, in my job. Things changed, I left my job and returned to the writing. I have loads of ideas and very little time to do them in.( Sound familiar?) I write, because I need to. When I am unable to write I walk in the shadow of madness. Some folk would argue that I'm there already. As well as writing, I read, paint, garden, knit and have just started making candles. I am owned by a retired greyhound called Daisy. My previous greyhound(Misty) was the inspiration to get writing again. Daisy is keeping that inspiration alive. Thanks for reading. Dorne x

  1. You won’t see it on those videos. but male birds have a blue base to their beaks, and females have pink. It’s particularly obvious in Spring as a method of attracting a nesting partner. Wonderful video, by the way!

    1. I didn’t know that. How cool – blue and pink.
      I wish I could shoot videos like these. I keep looking and hoping.
      I used to work in the centre of Bradford and all the starlings would come into the city at dusk to roost on the building ledges. I’ve never seen anything like it before or since. Incredible. The sound was amazing.
      I often wonder whether they still do it.


Go on...make my day/life and leave a comment. I don't bite...much!
