Thousands of starlings fly together to make an enormous bird


It looks too fantastic to be real. April 1 is still a week away, but I can't shake the feeling that someone will expose it as a hoax.

It appears to be real. There's even a video.

With today's technology , it is easy to photoshop a picture. But to see a video of the birds forming the picture it is a very convincing shot.

It is fantastic to watch large flocks "swarming" - It often happens out west with Budgerigars.
