Count the Crows

At four o’clock the crows gather near Hillcrest Street. This is just one tree of many where they roost.  I was waiting for Steve to pick me up at school. Their cawing sounds are loud and remind one of the movie The Birds. This is a color photo.

There were more but as I approaced the tree some flew away!

    My friend and I were just talking about the gathering of the crows last night and here you captured it on film.

    fabulous shot. It reminds me of a poem I wrote about crows. They are a noisy exuberance when they gather like that.

    This would be called a murder of crows. They may be mourning a death of one of their own.
