It's a Crow's World

So, the transition has happened at last. It started slowly. A few more crows showed up in the park. Then a few more. Meanwhile, the Canada Geese started slowly heading for more hospitable climates. And some time in the past week or so, the Most Common Bird of Powderhorn Park™ has officially switched: from Canada Goose to American Crow. It was an orderly transition, though not a quiet one.

I know for some people the start of crow-gathering-season is not necessarily a welcome event, but I can't help but appreciate the sheer volume and personality of the crows, especially in such large numbers. Their antics and garrulousness provide endless entertainment where otherwise there may not be much interesting to observe.
