American crow

I don't get many opportunities to photograph crows as they tend to be skittish.
A murder of crows was along the road and chose to ignore me.

Corvus brachyrhynchos

American Crows congregate in large numbers in winter to sleep in communal roosts. These roosts can be of a few hundred up to two million crows. Some roosts have been forming in the same general area for well over 100 years. In the last few decades some of these roosts have moved into urban areas where the noise and mess cause conflicts with people.
