The Crow Tree
For the past three or four years I've noticed that crows gravitate to this tree.. probably because it appears to be dying and they can see everything from the bare branches that grow no foliage. There have been as many as a dozen crows in this tree, flapping around, changing positions and generally making a pretty raucous noise.
I wonder if it's their party tree?
Do crows party?
But for me the gathering of crows isn't ominous it's a sign of spring coming, or mid-summer heat or fall arriving. They congregate in this tree at changes of season it seems to me. An interesting phenomenon.
More crows joined them a few minutes later and they flew away, laughing as they left.
Happy St. Patrick's Day. May the leprechauns bring you good luck today and not tricks.
