The logic behind this spectacular behaviour is simple: survival. Starlings are tasty morsels for peregrines, merlins and sparrowhawks. The answer is to seek safety in numbers, gathering in flocks and with every bird trying to avoid the edge where adept predators can sometimes snatch a victim. A flock of Starlings is called a "murmuration" - when thousands or millions of Starlings come together they swarm as if they are one organism. It's a “chorus line effect” – anticipating progress of the wave. Individual members are anticipating what’s going to happen and they bank absolutely perfectly. Things that look very complicated are actually following just a couple of very simple rules - they don’t want to be the first animal to go down to roost. It’s all about safety in numbers – none wants to be on the outside, none wants to be first to land.”   BBC
