Editor’s note: As fall deepens into colder weather and snow, Boulder’s birds prepare for winter. BLDRfly photographer Willie Cunningham captured a starlings murmuration in the fall skies in North Boulder as he hunted shots of local great horned owls.

Editor’s note: A previous version of this post incorrectly stated the pictured owl was a short-eared owl. It is a great horned owl.
