Aerial displays of starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) at their communal roosts are complex: thousands of individuals form multiple flocks which are continually changing shape and density, while splitting and merging. To understand these complex displays both empirical data and models are needed. Whereas detailed empirical data were recently collected through video recordings and position measurements by stereo photography of flocks of thousands of starlings, there are as yet no models that generate… Expand
