Huginn and Muninn visited my yard this morning. Sharing a slice of bread.

I think this pair has actually been hanging around for the last few weeks though I can't confirm.

I sometimes call this place City of Crows. It is their city. I am not sure it still is, sadly, but when I was in graduate school and living in this place for the first time, there was a grove of trees on campus where Crow would come to roost. En masse. And by en masse, I mean en masse. I think the University got tired of it and did something to scare them off. Too bad, because it was something awesome seeing murders upon murders of Crow descend upon the campus. And it would happen at around spooky time, which was all the better. So cool. Mass Crow roosting is amazing to see.

Springfield, Illannoying, used to also have crows in huge numbers, many of which roosted downtown. While the city had tried to scare them off...and apparently try to poison them on at least one occasion...West Nile virus happened. While the population is substantial now, it is nowhere near what it once was, and they do not seem to be roosting all in the downtown area.

We've got a family that lives on or near our property...it's hard to tell where they nest exactly, as they rarely make any noise near the roost, but they frequent our yard and forest, as well as the neighbors.

The freeway through Waterloo(next to the downtown area) has trees that just turn black with crows at night. Its so cool to see.
