These Common Crows were really making a lot of noise when I was out taking pictures on Feb. 5, 2013 in my yard. The small murder (another name for flock of Crows) of Crows was flitting between two older Oaks in the cow pasture across the pond from my home. There have been a few Hawks and Falcons around in recent days so perhaps one of these birds of prey had the Crows riled up. I just can’t say. Perhaps also, the Canada Geese were making the Crows nervous. Crows sometimes just become very flighty and talkative. The Crows are good to have around as they are a part of nature’s clean-up crew. They are entertaining to watch as well since they are highly intelligent birds. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
