The 2017 overall winner of the Swiss Ornithological Institute photography contest is of starlings gathering at dusk.

Looks like a birdie to me.

For information about the institute see here.

This flock behavior in starlings is commonly called a murmuration and is the subject of scientific research by computational biologists.. And also the subject of wonder.
