Video: Large flock of birds swooping in Richmond city centre

Hundreds of the birds entertained shoppers at Pricesmart on Sunday

Richmond News reader Zuleika Rivera Orbeta wanted to share this interesting video of birds flocking and swooping together in the city centre.

Orbeta captured the moment on Sunday, close to Pricesmart on Ackroyd Road.

According to bird experts Corvid Research, some birds engage in what’s called “communal roosting,” where “groups of both kin and unrelated individuals flock to a particular location for, in part, the security of safety in numbers.”
