In the books I describe the old abandoned house that Jarrod loves so much as being surrounded by trees and having large flocks of small birds that fly through the air in perfect synchronicity. This was based on a real house I visited several times as a teenager. The birds are starlings and to see them flying this way in a video is special enough, but seeing it in person is truly magical. It’s one of my favorite memories. I’ve located a good video of what they look like while they’re flying. Check it out and see just how magical they are.
