There are many ways to celebrate the start of a new year. Michael Molamphy may have rung in 2020 in one of the most majestic ways possible.
Molamphy filmed the birds at Tipperary Lake in Luska, Ireland. The passerines glide in unison almost like a well-planned ballet against the pink and orange sky.
Starlings can grow up to 14 inches in length and weigh up to 14 ounces. They are a highly social family of birds and are known for large flight formations like the one you see in the video.
A mesmerizing sunset and a coordinated avian performance are the best way to start the year — all courtesy of Mother Nature.
