Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Crow 10-30-15 -6402Yesterday I paid a visit to the Crows that hang out around Lake Shore East Park. It was a beautiful afternoon, and in the spirit of Halloween, or so it seemed, the Crows put on quite a show. Oblivious to all onlookers, they followed me around like puppies.

So here’s a little Halloween greeting from my not so scary friends.

Not all these pictures are from yesterday but they are recent.

It is so nice to have a small murder of crows again. I am looking forward to visiting them in the winter months which might otherwise be a bit lonely bird-wise. There were not a lot of other bird species yesterday, so I am sure the crows were also happy to have my almost-complete attention.

It’s raining and not quite dark yet. The doorbell will no doubt start ringing soon. When Halloween falls on a work night I miss most of it, so I hope the weather doesn’t dampen the spirits of the trick-or-treaters too much.

  1. These are the most handsome crows I’ve seen! The first photo on top is fantastic! Good shots Lisa! We had like a 80 kids at our doors today. 🙂

    • Thanks, H.J.! My crows thank you. (They keep telling me they’re beautiful.) I need about 80 more kids to get rid of all this candy. No more visitors today than after working all day. Oh well, guess I’ll look for one of those charities that recycles candy…! My crows have an idea: I should stock up on peanuts for Halloween… 🙂

  2. love that first picture! I wonder if the crows would still recognize you in a different coat or without the camera and peanut bag. They’re so smart I wouldn’t be surprised if they did!

    • Thanks, Frank! Yes, it doesn’t matter what I’m wearing, how long it’s been…not even whether I’m carrying the peanut bag or not, they still recognize me. I suspect that some of the crows around my neighborhood recognize me too even though I don’t feed them directly. I haven’t figured that one out. I don’t know if they have cousins downtown that they sometimes roost with or if they visit my yard when I’m not around. Or if they just recognize my Inner Crow. I am proud to be a member of their friendship circle.
