Crow

Corvus brachyrhynchos

Notes:

Large groups of crows come to feed on the seeds I throw out on the ground. Usually they are all business, but when they eat their fill and relax a bit they can become quite social and playful.... they make snow angels too! One crow tried to eat all the left over spaghetti in one mouthful

Thanks Susan and Ashish .... someone suggested that they land on snow like this for the fun of it, so you maybe right. Crows do have a big impact on my life for sure.... if there is a big hawk or owl around they yell at it and gang it. Often if I follow their voices I am brought to the owl... also I have seen them interact in family groups, very good at sharing with each other, seem to enjoy each others company, A good example for us humans I think!
