Starling murmurations are dazzling, ubiquitous, and puzzling

Pers / media: OnderzoekAcademic

Description

Look up on a fall or winter day in the Northern Hemisphere and you may see the fast, synchronous cloud of thousands of birds swirling over their roosts. While migrating south, starlings take rest stops for a few weeks at a time and perform murmurations together at dusk, sometimes lasting up to 45 minutes at a time.

    BeschrijvingIt’s a mesmerizing sight: Thousands of birds move in unison through the evening sky, whirling and swooping as if performing a highly synchronized ballet.

    When they finally descend to their treetop roost, the beating of their iridescent wings creates such a rush of sound that the noise earned the phenomenon its unusual name: a murmuration of starlings.

    BeschrijvingSpreeuwenzwermen met eigen ogen meemaken is iets waanzinnig moois. Het natuurverschijnsel ziet er heel mysterieus uit (check onderstaande video ook even). In Putten kunnen we in deze periode genieten, want de vogels vliegen steeds vaker boven de woonwijken. Maar waarom vliegen ze op deze manier in zo’n grote groep bij elkaar? En hoe komt het dat ze niet botsen?
