Crows in the Trees

On June 26, 2012, I took these pictures of a small flock of common Crows perched and flitting around in a clump of dead trees in the gulch area just below the pond’s dam.  The Crows made a lot of noise and could be heard across the yard up at the house.  We don’t have Crows here very often.  Sometimes they will be a clean-up squad but usually they are tormenting a larger bird of prey.  They are pretty interesting birds.  They are medium-to-large birds that are jet black.  They will eat just about anything from insects, small animals, fish, and grains, and fruit.  When eating plant foods, they especially love eating Sunflower seeds, and Corn.  This morning, I am looking out the window and seeing that same group of crows sitting in the Oak across the yard just near the pond.  I think that the corn is getting more mature and they may have their eye on it.  Ha!   Fat chance!!!  The Crows are smart and are interesting birds!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    • Hi Eileen, Thanks! Glad you also have Crows in your yard on occasion. Yes, they do like suet and if available, bird seed. Have a wonderful Monday tomorrow!
