You see that crow that just launched into the air? Yeah, that's me ready for 2018. All my projects are going to get launched into the air completed and ready to share. There will be no murder's though unless we're talking about a flock of crows.
I love crows and ravens too. These intelligent black birds are fascinating to me. The sounds they make when they communicate are also fun for me to try and imitate. I just wish I knew what they (and myself) are saying in Corvidae language.
The sound of the word murder evokes fear and some people see crows as a bad omen so maybe that's how the term came to be. I just think it sounds better than calling it a flock so I use the alternative name for the group reference. Did you know a group of ravens is called a congress? I didn't either until I looked up the term murder for this post. Pause for thought, just be caws.
