Flocking starlings

A decreasing starling population makes this an ever rarer spectacle. Just before this scheduled shoot, the flock suddenly disappeared. After several days of doggedly tracking every small group of starlings, the crew discovered the entire flock minutes down the road. Local observers confirmed that the birds took an annual 'holiday' in the nearby reed bed before returning to their usual winter roost.
