It's a fascinating and plausible story, but it has been retracted.

You learn something new every day here--I always thought it was a "murder of crows" and had not heard the term "muster" for a group of crows before.

Are you thinking of a murmur (or murmuration) of starlings?

that story was not the one i posted FWIW. the video doesn't go into the "facts" retracted in the NYT article. nevertheless, i don't stand by the realness of the video. i just thought it was amusing..
