Sorry for the paucity of posts this week and last. I’ve been knee-deep in my next book and am facing a self-imposed deadline.

In the meantime, check out this video of a flock of starlings. The physics of bird behavior in flocks is absolutely fascinating, and I can’t begin to explain or comprehend it. It’s well nigh something miraculous, in my opinion. But it’s awesome to watch, and this is an excellent video of it. Watch it with your kids.

If you’ve got the wherewithal to try to explain it, this Wired article will help. Good luck.
