A Murder of Crows

Standard

      Yesterday evening a murder of crows descended on the roof of my apartment cawing obscenities in shrill tones I couldn’t ignore.

         I dashed onto my patio peering up to discover the object of their fury when a single crow looked down at me cocking its neck in curiosity.

         The cawing fell silent followed by the flapping of a thousand wings ascending into the night sky leaving me alone to contemplate their visit.

I Love the picture you start your blog with.. and am fascinated by the intelligence of crows… have you seen that story on the internet of the little girl who began feeding them when she was four, and is now eight, and how the crows began bringing her gifts, and she has a whole collection now which she treasures….
