Starlings and pigeons mixed flock VS the hawk

starlings-pigeons-hawk
I think I am the first who ever filmed a mixed flock of pigeons and starlings. My youngster pigeons got scared by the hawk and started the “dance” around it up in the sky. A flock of young starlings joined my pigeons. Power in numbers!

After a while, the starlings started to split from the flock but one of them kept flying with the pigeons for a long time. I’m sorry it didn’t join the flock in the loft.

Here’s the prey VS predator dance in the sky: Sturnus Vulgaris + Columba Livia V.S. Accipier Gentilis.
