American Crow - The house crow has black body feathers glossed with metallic violet. Its wings are black with a green-violet gloss, and the eyes are brown. If threatened by a hawk or owl, flocks of crows will attack the larger predator.
"An Offering To The Wind"::by Paul M. Breeden. "I saw a huge flock of crows feasting on wild blueberries. They were spread out all over a field. Three crows sat at the top of the field. The central crow had a feather in his beak and moved it back and forth as if showing it to the other two. This must have been a very important five minute ceremony. I just had to do a painting of it.
It's a Crow! Did you know they live in family groups, and return to the same spots year after year to nest? Odds are that a large group of crows is an extended family, not just random crows that have formed a murder! (AKA: Flock of Crows)
