Here’s your vocabulary word for the day:  Murmuration

Sound it out.  Mur-mur-ation.

Good!  Do you know what it means?  A murmuration is a flock of starlings.  You’ve probably seen it before, when a huge group of starlings fly in a big mass.  They swoop and dive and kind of dance in the sky.  I saw a group of them doing just that the other day.  It’s pretty amazing, right?  Well, wait until you see this.  These two girls in Ireland, who just happen to be in a canoe (love that!) witnessed a murmuration that is INCREDIBLE!  Lucky for us they got it all on video.
