A Crow on Halloween

Saw this crow on halloween in one of my trees while waiting for trick or treaters to show up. It was huge, which doesn't quite show how big here. It was a pretty impressive bird, and i've been noticing a lot more crows in the yard than normal for some reason. I do find them to be very interesting birds, especially after seeing the episode of Nature on PBS called "A Murder of Crows".

Speaking of trick or treaters, this year was an unusual i think, a lot, and i do mean a lot, of very young children, and not one high school kid. Lots of the young kids were in big groups of about four families, some single families, but pretty steady for a couple of hours. All had pretty cute costumes, not one an NFL team jersey which seemed rare from previous years. All and all, a good turn out, but then the weather was good, even if it got colder as the night went on.

I've been bad at posting for a variety of reasons, probably best to not go into them here, as i'm sure no one is really interested. Hopefully i can find the motivation to get back to posting regularly, although it's getting into that part of the year where things look and feel drab as leaves have gone, and everything is turning brown or grey.
