Anyway, this past Monday I was walking home around 6pm and I saw a murder of crows (15-20)flying and making noise and the red tail was flying amongst them! I haven’t seen anything like it before. I stopped for a few minutes just watching to see if there would be an attack; a pigeon or some other smaller bird attacked the hawk once but the murder of crows was moving away and the hawk was right there with them. He was flying more towards the outside of the group but sort of chasing the crows and the crows chasing him, but it didn’t seem to be predation. It was the strangest thing and I was too caught up watching to take a photo. However, if I see anything like it again I’ll take a photo!
Indeed, I’ve been chasing crows and ravens for the past few days. It wasn’t planned really, at least not the crows, I was looking for any bird in flight shots and to my surprise there were quite a few crows and ravens as well! Yes, ravens! It is such a treat to spot ravens.
