Skywatch Friday: 50 Crows

Skywatch Friday:  50 Crows

I heard an amazing racket while walking in the Montlake neighborhood near the Arboretum, and looked up to see 50 crows (I counted) perched in the tree tops on a rainy afternoon this week. As I approached, some took flight. Crows are among the most numerous and commonly seen and heard birds in Seattle. So much so, that studies of their living patterns are being conducted. You might remember previous posts of crows with various colored bands on their legs, like this shot.
Visit Skywatch Friday to see skies around the world.
