My fascinations with crows started in San Francisco. A friend of mine used them as an omen to keep her eyes and ears open for messages from the Universe. As soon as she said it, I started seeing crows in city. When I moved to Troy NY, I was introduced to the phenomena of crow migration in the winter. Crows are typically solitary birds. However, in the winter at night they come from their various regular digs to the riverfront and one of those places was a park right across the street from me. The above picture is a murder (a group of crows) of crows in NYC, because lol all my pictures are too dark. To me, they look like beautiful black flowers on the blooming on leafless trees, and I loved walking in the park when they were there, though carefully. It felt magically.
The other time that crows come together is when another crow dies. They hold what looks like a crow’s “funeral” Researchers at the Avian Conservation Lab found that if a crow sees one of its brethren dead it will call out and other crows will come. The researchers also found that crows have amazing human facial recognition (See article on how they used caveman masks), so they have theorized that this behavior has come about for crows to communicate about threats in their territory. This discovery gives a twist as to why a group of crows is called a murder.
