The Putin Murmuration

Not anything weird, just murmuration.

It turns out Vladimir Putin was seen invading the skies of New York City last week.

Yes, you can visualize a face in this flock of birds but it’s just pareidolia – the human habit of seeing faces in things. I don’t think it looks like Putin but some will say it’s an omen of an invasion.

An invasion of damned starlings, more like. Birds do this organized flying thing this time of year.

    Funny how no one on the tour bus is reacting to such an unusual, if not scary, sight. Also funny how the video cuts off before getting closer to the birds. And as DN has pointed out before, the quick zoom in and out has become such a cliche. Where’s Alfred Hitchcock when you need him?

    I’m grading this as F for Fake.
