Image 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. copyright 2015 Tish Farrell Share this:PrintTumblrPinterestMoreFacebookTwitterLinkedInLike this:Like Loading... Related

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.
We watch the swallows perform their own twilight ballet. Nice
Lovely. You are also privy to the starlings spectacular shows. Your second picture reminded me of this short video. I get goosebumps every time I watch it.
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
🙂 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.
That must be amazing to watch.
I’d like to capture the starlings on the Somerset Levels one day!
Now that would be a dramatic capture, Gilly. All those ancient spirits to go with it too 🙂
I can see why you never tire of this. It must feel so uplifting to watch.
and mysterious too. Sometimes the dance is more elaborate, with rooks swirling very low and fast over the field.
what a gorgeous picture.
Thank you, Shimon.
Fantastic sight. I’m always amazed they don’t crash into each other. Here are a swarm of budgerigars I saw in the Australian outback https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnGlpZFR0RI
That’s quite a sight, Pauline.
What a remarkable performance in your evening sky. Delightful!
Yes, we are very lucky 🙂
Blue hour in nature. You are inspiring me, Tish! A very mood swarm photo. I love it.
So happy if I’m inspiring you, Paula. That’s lovely to know 🙂
