It is true - alien, aggressive, successful, 'coyote of the bird world'....

Watching the flocks ( mumurations) wheel, careen, plunge, hurtle.... it is sublime.

And I for one, never tire of the display.

With apologies to Shakespeare:

'Before, I loved thee as a bird, starling,
But now, I do respect thee as my soul.'
