Peregrine falcon hunting starlings

Thursday, March 01, 2012

This video is from the BBC series Earthflight shows a huge group of starlings flocking, or I guess I should say murmating, over Rome. A peregrine falcon tries to hunt one for dinner and has troubles with their maneuvers.

If you're interested, we've posted a couple of starling videos before on Flares: Starlings: twilight landing and A murmation of starlings
