Oh Wow: Photographer Captures A Flock Of Birds Forming Shape Of A Giant Bird

January 4, 2018


This is a small series of photos captured by photographer Daniel Biber of a murmuration (a flock of starlings flying in 'swooping, intricately coordinated patterns') in Costa Brava, Spain. At several times the birds actually look like they're forming a giant bird, VOLTRON STYLE. How about that! You think they did that on purpose? "No." But they could have. "But they didn't." You don't give birds enough credit, one time a seagull stole my ice cream cone AND shat on my back.

Keep going for a couple more pics.



Thanks to Alyssa, who agrees birds are way smarter than we give them credit for. Especially bats. "Bats aren't birds." That's what they want you to think!

    This is even more amazing when you consider that the photographer had to be at the proper angle for this to look like a bird. If he had viewed it from another compass direction, he never would have noticed its unique form.

    Very cool!

    Could have looked like a penis for all we know!

    All I can see is a penis. Where the hell are the birds?

    Photoshop, the shadows are all wrong ... wait, that line was funny about 4 years ago on this site, right?

    It's still funny to me, go on.

    Here I am logging into my other account, under a disguised name, to write about how fat afterooster's wife is:

    I heard afterooster's wife ate a whole bird on Thanksgiving and got a little bit of olive oil on her hand in the shape of a Pilgrim -- she was going to get a tattoo of it in memory of the Holiday, like a Christmas Miracle (eating 1,525 yule logs and gaining 500 lbs), then going to church and staining in the back for service because she couldn't fit in the pews. Afterooster's wife is a nice lady -- she is just one, if not THE FATTET, women in the universe. I want to get a tattoo of like a lucky charm with a rainbow that I saw in the sky once -- other people want to get tattoos of afterooster's wife riding a mechanical bull at a strip club where she is the ONLY fat human there.=)=)=)

    Hubree: You are the SMARTEST and MORE BRILLIANT AND POPULAR COMPUTER HAZ0R AS GOD -- I saw you write 'Hubree is God' on 4CHAN -- VERY L33T.=)=)=) I love you, little bogey!=)
    Irina: It was nice throwing up Bruegger's today and accidentally flushing my new three leaf clover ring with you. I'll get a new one and feel less sad then, but until then, you can find me ashing into a RedBull as a coping mechanism for grief.=)
