The most beautiful murder of crows is in my yard right now

I don't know what they are after. But every year in later November and into December, these huge flocks of crows spend a couple weeks raking every inch of the grass for something in the Philly area. Hundreds of them in a small area. Something must scare them because they fly en masse into trees. And then they almost immediately begin flying down to the ground again. And when the fly down, they look like small Dementors or piercing black rain drops. It's really the most beautiful thing when the sun hits them while they do this. I'd rather watch them than work.

If you feed them they'll bring you trinkets.

Crows are very smart and remember faces. Don’t mess with them! Be nice & feed them and they will be nice to you!

I love crows and ravens and magpies.

I prefer badlings of ducks and parliaments of owls.

I don't think those are crows you are seeing.

It sounds like they are grackles. They are black and swarm in huge flocks that do a sort of aerial ballet. We have them in South Jersey.

Crows are not very agile.

A plague of grackles

Grackles are noticeably smaller than crows.

Those are not crows! They’re buzzards! They are murderous! Run for your life, bitch!

Seagulls follow me around, I have to run from my car to the door.

Buzzards aren't interested in you if you have a pulse.

Pay attention to R13, OP. Those buzzards are going to dive bomb you right in the groin.

Melanie Daniels must be close. Watch out for the tall slim blonde in a medium green suit who rarely smiles
