Die mooi patrone van ‘n swerm spreeus in vlug

Ons ken spreeus. Maar het jy geweet as ‘n swerm spreeu in vlug is, hulle die mooiste patrone in die lug kan vorm?

Ons het ‘n reeks van video’s van dié besonderse patrone saamgestel.

Verwonder jou gerus aan dié indrukwekkende patrone.

Video 1: After months of chasing these birds around Lough Ennel, Co. Westmeath. James Crombie and I captured a unique display. His shot made front cover of the Irish Times and this is the video of the murmuration behind that iconic photograph.

Video 2: We know a lot of factual information about the starling—its size and voice, where it lives, how it breeds and migrates—but what remains a mystery is how it flies in murmurations, or flocks, without colliding. This short film by Jan van IJken was shot in the Netherlands, and it captures the birds gathering at dusk, just about to start their “performance.” Listen well and you’ll be able to hear how this beautiful phenomenon got its name.
The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors.
