Thanks for stopping by c2c5e5. There's a murder of crows that roost in the evening in the trees on the meridian outside our window. It's such a treat to watch them swoop in and get settled on the branches. we hadn't seen them for a few days and thought they'd migrated, but this morning we awoke to the sound of crow's cawing---what a great way for the day to begin :D
