Crows are roosting in Greenfield, at the old Tap and Die building across from the hospital where I work. This time of year hundreds of crows (mostly the juveniles) fly from miles around to a roosting spot to spend the night in the trees, making a ruckus for a while and then sleeping. The other afternoon I saw the birds gathering outside of the window at work at dusk. They were coming from all directions.
At midnight, after work, I stopped by the roosting spot for a visit.
The moon was full so I could see them gathered in the trees. Some alighted and flew in a circle, cawing around the trees in a cloud. I grabbed a picture, you can see them gathered in the tree.
