It's almost dead center in #1. I misunderstood Frank's pano; he used #2. I thought he had used #1. We both see the same bird, I guess. Matt
Good, that means you and I were seeing the same thing!

I came across something and learned it's called murmuring. I've added the rest for your inspiration!

The incredible science behind starling murmurations
"As starlings gather in the evenings to roost, often they will participate in what is called a murmuration — a huge flock that shape-shifts in the sky as if it were one swirling liquid mass. Often the behavior is sparked by the presence of a predator like a hawk or peregrine falcon, and the flock's movement is based on evasive maneuvers. There is safety in numbers, so the individual starlings do not scatter but rather are able to move as an intelligent cloud, feinting away from a diving raptor, thousands of birds changing direction almost simultaneously. The question that has had scientists stumped is how each bird, most of them tens or hundreds of birds away from the danger, senses the shift and moves in unison? ..."

Thank you for this. They are beautiful to watch, and I get mesmerized standing beneath their flow.
