Take Down the Lights

Crows
Crow Debate

Must be the usual post Christmas discussion about when to remove the decorations. There used to be a lot of debate about this since Little Christmas – or Feast of the Epiphany – falls on January 6th and no one really wants to cut short the holiday season. However, these northwestern crows are just having their usual midday confab about who knows what. Since they all roost together in one spot every night when it is not mating season, their gathering in the middle of the day must have some rationale other than intense vocalizations and flapping of wings. As suddenly as they group together, within fifteen minutes or so they disperse back to their own little territory to scrounge for food. About the lights, well… pretend they’re not there until next December and quit bugging the birds.
