Wordless Wednesday

The Crow Show in Carlsbad

 

We have a Crow Show every evening around dinner time. Here's an example of a recent performance over the July 4th holiday when the grandkids were visiting - they thought it was great fun!

 

 

We have lots of birds visiting our yard during the day - mourning doves, hooded orioles (May to September), several types of finches, quail, scrub jays, an occasional red tailed hawk, vireos, black-headed grosbeaks, spotted towhees, and the ever-present hummingbirds (several different species).

 

Thankfully the crows tend to only hang around in the evening...but it's fun to see them dive-bomb and chase the hawk during the day. The Crow Show is something else!

Jeff,

We see those buggers across the way from us, and they give the hawks a real chase.  And they are very noisy!  A

Hi Jeff... we see flocks of crows here, as well. I always find them a bit scary!

Looks like a lot of fun. I would wear a hat out there in case one of them mistakes you for their next meal.

It is the pre dawn doves concert here that can be less than a welcome alarm !

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel 

Noisy indeed. They hang out over at the lagoon too.  More recently they have been over at a new housing community on the houses!!

It's pretty funny to watch and listen to a few times Brian England  especially if you haven't seen them. Just glad they don't hang out on our roof but they do use the neighborhood trees some.

I'm just surprised at how large a community they can become, and quickly!

Morning Jeff.

While I've seen my share of crows, I have never seen that many at one time.
