This morning we went on our normal shopping safari. On the way to the supermarket we passed a freshly mowed field. It is part of the farm adjoining our local psychiatric clinic in the background.
And then I saw the crows. I am sure Alfred Hitchcock would have bee delighted. Crows seem to have an antenna. “Look boys and girls, they have prepared a table for us” and they appear from all directions. after the field is freshly mowed and the earth turned. I assume that when the surface is removed all sorts of living objects appear, suitable for a crow meal. It seems that crows are one of the most intelligent birds and have a good memory.
We have a crow colony bordering our territory. They sit in the trees and suddenly as if the chief gave an order, they go for a collective fly past, arriving all together in another tree. There fly overs are also accompanied with caws of course. I just love those birds.
