Crows by Gray Photography
A Murder of Crows

My family pet, Doobie has new friends to play with.

A flock of crows has been hanging out in the cottonwood trees about 100 meters from our back porch. They gather here multiple times each day and when Doobie is in the yard they like to fly over and taunt him. I’ve watched one crow intentionally drop a stick in the yard. Some do laps.

I hope to document more of this activity. It’s fun watching the new pooch learn about the urban wildlife we have living with us.

Oh, and there’s at least one handsome fox frequenting the yard. I’m going to put the camera trap up today and get some photos. He has a nice multi-shade, thick coat and he is larger than the average suburban red fox too.
