Guess who's back?
Their numbers grew quietly this month, gathering at the edges especially near Wilkinsburg. Last night it was official. The crows are here.
Peter Bell and Anne Marie Bosnyak emailed reports from Oakland. My husband called from Squirrel Hill.
Anne Marie said, "Saw a murder of crows at the playground across the street from the Church Brew Works last night and a coworker saw them this morning in Schenley! Borrowed from Thin Lizzy (source: http://www.lyricsondemand.com/)
The crows are back in town! The crows are back in town!
Guess who just got back today?
Them wild-eyed crows that had been away
Haven't changed, haven't much to say
But man, I still think them cats are crazy."
Silence isn't their strong suit. The crows will have lots to say in the days ahead.
Let me know when you see them.
