Rooks dancing in the new moon

I never grow tired of watching the rook and jackdaw ballet that takes place every twilight behind our house. I thought I’d share it once again.

  1. What a beautiful photograph.
    We could see something from the French doors of the lounge in our old house in Chester. But not quite as spectacular as this.

    1. These bird displays are spectacular, and the one on the link the most spectacular I’ve seen, so thank you, Victoria. I think starlings have the edge over rooks due to sheer numbers. They move like intelligent smoke. Wonderful

      1. 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed it. We have crows here, a larger version of rooks, and they can gather in trees in huge numbers then take off all at once. It’s rather spectacular, too, but nothing like the magnificence of starlings.
