Starlings took everyone by surprise with their breathtaking murmurations above Beersheba city in Israel. Starlings have performed swooping, pivoting and soaring in the air. Ornithologist Yossi Leshem of Tel Aviv University said that the starlings not only find safety in numbers but their changing movements and shifting collective shape confuses their would-be attackers like falcon or hawk which tries to attack a single bird. He said that that can create a sudden breeze with their synchronized movements.
