The area in which we live is also a nice place for these crows to live also. There are so many of them at times that they darken the skies. They especially love this time of year where it snows and melts and then snows again. They scare me. I have never been very fond of birds, they are cute from a distance and I love the songs they sing, but they also give me the chills when they get too close. But these crows are big and scary and sound awful when they crow, that's why I took a picture of them from inside my house.
