A Noisy Bunch

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!

  1. A murder of crows, I am sure they were noisy. I have just one or two and they sounds loud. Have a happy day!

    • Hi Eileen, Yes, along with the honking of the geese, the Crows are the noisiest of the bunch! They do have personality and are pretty fun to watch. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Unlike Grackles, Crows can be our friends… At least they don’t ‘hog’ the feeders like Grackles do… Luckily, we don’t have many Grackles here. The crows around here keep the hawks at bay I think. That is good also–since I enjoy protecting my little birds…

    This morning, I saw a male and female bluebird checking out the nest box ALREADY… Spring seems to be happening too early this year.

  3. I’m glad to see them around: they are a very good clean-up crew! We seem to have more ravens here than crows.

    • Hi Montucky, I have seen Ravens up in Yellowstone and also in Alaska. They make Crows look puny. Ravens are smarter birds, too (in my opinion). Have a great week!
