"The passenger pigeon (Ectopistes migratorius) or wild pigeon was a species of pigeon that was once the most common bird in North America. It lived in enormous migratory flocks - sometimes containing more than two billion birds - that could stretch one mile (1.6 km) wide and 300 miles (500 km) long across the sky, sometimes taking several hours to pass."

"A ruin swarm has only one tactic: swoop in and engulf any creature, in order to feed its never-ending hunger."

40% of UFO sightings are probably this. I saw one once, like a giant aerial amoeba.

I want to see a plane fly through it.
I'd just like to see video from underneath the birds. Does the sky turn black? Does their screeching drive men deaf or mad? Does the power of their wings knock you down from the air blast?
starling swarms are good for one thing: taking a massive shit on whatever they fly over

They migrated here all the way from Starlingrad
Dawkins uses starlings to demonstrate emergent behavior in his most recent book. On first glance you might assume that the shape of the flock has to be coordinated somehow, but in reality it is the product of individuals obeying local rules. Protein folding happens in much the same way, except that there are a few "levels" to it.
Almost lost a star for not having a giant flying whale come through and devour them.
What th-- what the f-- are we going over there--? Are we going over there? Who the fuck is in charge here and where are we going?
