Many years ago, I was finishing up work and loading the tools back into the service truck and above me I noticed were crows. They were about an eighth to a quarter of a mile wide flying north west from the south east. The distant mountains were probably twenty five miles away from where they had come, by the time I finished loading and got ready to go, they were from horizon to horizon, easily 50-60 miles, and in any given moment there were probably several hundred directly overhead, not to mention those still coming and those which had passed. It could well have been a half million crows or more, easily more.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing. Reminds that computers scientists are trying simulate the "hive mentality" where no one creature (in this case birds) leads the pack but all follow and make rapid adjustments with one goal. Imagine if computer networks could behave like this....

I love movies like this, it really proves that there is so much more to life than most of us observe. We are too busy to see things like this normally, it takes a person being on a rowboat in the middle of nowhere to see in this video but things like this truly are all around us. Being an "outdoor" person, I often go hiking and taking the time to observe the "simple" beauty puts the world in perspective.

On another note, How amazing is it that this flock of thousands of individuals are so in-sync with every other individual in the group, to the point that a single bird going out of line, will split up the rest of the flock around it into a new shape.
