That's freaky. Did Mulder and Scully take that footage?

Breathtaking. I'm curious what perfume evokes the feeling you got from watching that? I'm thinking AG's Eau de Sud for me, but I don't know why.

Dave, no more sci-fi for you.

That's a great question, Pikake. I'm trying to think of a "swirling blackbirds" perfume in my collection...hmm. Oddly enough, what springs to mind is Caron's Alpona, though I could not say why. (I suppose it should be En Avion, but that one seems all wrong.)

Hmmmm, Alpona. Shall have to sniff that the next time I am at the Perfume House!

Thanks for posting that link. I thought I'd seen huge bird flocks, but now realize they were small. Oh, only about 1000-5000! They were awesome. Yes, this seems otherworldy. Perhaps some of that is because it's not in person? When I saw 5000 Brant, I heard the sound way before I saw the sight.

That's downright poetic - what a racket they must have made!

Julie, I don't think I've ever seen a brant, a flock of thousands must be amazing. I love the racket starlings make. I can imagine a huge group of waterfowl would make an overwhelming noise. Was it thrilling to hear them?
