Spectacular Animal Phenomena

Posted Thursday, November 17, 2011, at 3:04 PM

One of my favorite things to do, is to read about Nature. There are hundreds of stories about how creatures attest to the brilliance of the creator. Even a tiny bug can strengthen our faith. One of those stories, I'd been blessed to come across the other day. Now, I didn't film this amazing act of nature, but I certainly felt motivated to share it with others.

This is one of the most spectacular animal phenomena known to man. It has to do with a flock of thousands of tiny birds flying and swirling about. Mind you, with thousands flying close to one another, it would had been easy for one bird to fly into another. This

isn't mad confusion, this is a harmoniously act.

Wow. Thanks for this. Breathtaking and inspiring. And we humans think we know something of teamwork!
