That word I had never heard before, and it came with a link for a video. The source was reliable so I trusted the link would not crash my computer. But I Googled the word anyway.
Turns out it was aboot birds Starlings.  And things, places, and persons. It was a noun, a part of English I understand.
Here in the north we never saw a starling until a few years ago. Last years Christmas Bird Count found 318 here in Anchorage  In Ireland they have a lot more.

  1. I have seen something similar to this, in all places, in Tempe, Arizona, where there are huge flocks of birds in the trees that line the blocks of the city's downtown area (right next to where I work). Hundreds of these birds raise a ruckus in the trees, especially during hot summer evenings, and occasionally I see those amazing flying formations too.

    I don't know if they are starlings.

    Cool video, though! Thanks for sharing.
