A Murder Of Crows


Hooded Crows are not loved by Egyptian farmers but I really like them. They can be destructive of crops and they will capture and eat the hatchlings of other birds, which can be less than endearing. 

This group was happily digging bugs out of our lawn, though their favorite food seems to be the dogs' kibble.  A murder of crows is what a group of crows would be called and the two large beige hairy things are two of my dogs.

A peculiar designation for the group, I've always thought.

The dogs are much more interested in naps.

Thanks for the tip! There are lots of these where I am, too, and no one I've asked knows what they are called. It's been bugging me for ages, and now I know!
