Re: flock of crows

speaking of flocks I mean murders of crows, we have these huge groups of
them on campus, int he hundreds maybe a thousand or so that just fly around
the 2 block area. It’s freaky, makes you think of the bird, especially when
you hear the sqwuaking and see this mving black mass against the night sky.

Crows in flocks that size can become very aggressive if food is scarce,
there was a report just last week on Excite.com about a bunch of sheep
herders in Austria loosing many sheep to crow attacks.

We have the same exact problem in Davis here. Crows like crazy! Makes it a
waste to wash a car (and kinda gross)

Well for one thing there’s the movie “A Murder of Crows” with Cuba
Gooding, Jr. But I knew it back in grade school sometime, probably
because it was one of the fun facts at Halloween that my school used to
pass around back when it was still OK for schools to celebrate holidays. :wink:
