Murmuration of starlings lends magic to Kochi sky

Kochi: A murmuration of starlings flying in synchronicity has been creating swirling black patterns in sky over Ernakulam North railway station. In the evening they congregate in the crowns of trees winging in shape-shifting fashion from a nearby mobile tower. Their raucous cries rend the night air. Then, religiously at 6.30 a.m., they lift off again in mesmeric grace. The incredible natural event helps them catch prey and keep warm. It is also a way of warding off predators, which are far less likely to attack the birds massed in big groups. Such a gathering of these passing migratory birds is uncommon for this part of the country. The rare sight has been drawing curious visitors.
