Day 81. Chalkboard Murmuration Bird

20 Mar

You might be asking, what’s a “murmuration?” I did. Well think of it as the original flash mob, dance-off, with thousands of birds. I came across a YouTube video on Starlings, and how these birds move in unison like one large organism in the sky. Science is calling these spectacular transforming patterns a murmuration. And today’s Bird-A-Day art is inspired by the Starling birds amazing aerial acrobatics. They are breath taking to watch. Do a quick YouTube video search if you haven’t already seen a Starling murmuration yourself. After making a chalkboard with my handy, hobby store liquid chalkboard, I slowly chipped away at forming my own murmuration. Enjoy.
