This is a murder of crows. That is the official name for a flock of crows. The reason that I photographed them, was that I was amazed at their abilities. Two days ago before the snow storm, I threw out a couple of tablespoons of rice vermicelli on the ground. Then the snow came and covered it all up with an inch and a half of snow.
I really don't know they found the rice noodles, but they did. The yard is a big place, and the food was frozen so it didn't give off a very big smell. Yet I found these crows digging out rice noodles out of the snow. I really don't know how they found the small amount of food so quickly.
The reason that they are in the tree, is that they were spooked when I moved the Venetian blind on the window to photograph them.
