High Above Me

Crow 1

Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane?

It’s SuperCrow!

I heard one crow cawing high above me as I was bringing in the washing one afternoon. I craned my neck back and saw it circling round and round.

Crow 2

It was soon joined by another crow and then another. I dashed inside for my trusty Canon and leaning right back took a few photos of what looked to me like clear blue skies. I knew the crows were circling away up there because I could still hear them cawing now and then, but they were far away and very hard to see.

However, I did manage to catch all five of them in one shot in the end.

They are Pied Crows, quite large birds around 50 cm in length.

Crow 4

Then after all their aerial manoeuvres they flew off into the deep blue sky. I bet all you can see in the photo above is just that! I assure you there are some birds there.


post script: The collective noun for a flock of crows is a Murder or Horde of crows.

And because you are probably thinking of it, here is a link to the song by Tal Bachman, She’s so High.

      I really don’t see my guys enough to feel anything other than “wow, look at the big bird”. πŸ˜€
      But I do remember a crow dive-bombing a cat once in my parent’s garden in UK.

    We have a lot of crows here, they seem to like the beach probably because of the shells and creatures still in them.. We have also seen several gang up on birds of prey, especially buzzards, in the summer.

      I’m glad you liked the song. πŸ™‚
      I guess they were just all getting together for some reason. They all flew off together – maybe they were an extended family? πŸ™‚
