Flock & Awe

Flock and awe! Even the elephants are scared by jumbo cloud of tiny red-billed birds

But even these elephants were scared by a jumbo-sized cloud of birds who are the same size as the common starling.  The red-billed queleas swarmed around this pair of pachyderms as they tried to drink at the Satao Camp water hole in East Tsavo, Kenya. In seconds, the peace was shattered by a storm of wings, frightening the elephants away. Scroll down for video
