Okay, I need a crowologist or whatever to explain to me why there are--seriously--hundreds of crows in the trees around my house.
Maybe there are crows in trees around everyone's house, and I haven't noticed.
Seriously, there are at least two hundred of them total in the tree behind my house and the trees in my neighbors yard, and I think they're are hundreds in a few other trees around here, too.
It's 10:30-ish and I can hear them cawing out there. It's crazy creepy. This has been going on for... well, days, at least... if not a couple of weeks.
I'm trying to remember this happening last year... or the year before... or any of the other years I've lived here, and I don't seem to remember the whole Crowapalooza thing.
And I'm no supernaturalist or whatever, but I've read enough creepy stories and seen enough creepy movies to be creeped out by CrowCon 2006. Like aren't crows supposed to escort souls or something? Because that's a LOT of dead folk. Either that, or it's gonna be my turn soon and they figure my soul is extra-heavy.
I think I'll try to get a picture of them during daylight hours tomorrow. If you have a... um... I don't know what crows come in, but I know I should... murder, isn't it? Am I making that up? "A murder of crows" sounds familiar. Anyway, if you have a murder (or whatever) of crows where you are, could you comment so I can feel less creeped out?
