I knew the crows were back in town for the winter but there was no doubt late yesterday in Oakland.
Around 4:20pm thousands of crows started passing WQED, heading for Schenley Heights.
I wish I’d thought to count them but I missed my chance. Not a big loss though. They’ll give me ample opportunity in the days and weeks ahead.
Here’s what they looked like last winter as they passed Carnegie Mellon University. Click on Tom Merriman’s photo to get a better idea of how they fill the sky.

p.s. If you read “Hope is the bird…” November 15th but didn’t find out if I saw tundra swans, read the answer at the end of that post.
