on his way to a crow party

Yesterday’s Phenology: another pleasant January day, with temperatures just about at the freezing mark. Our first winter trip to the dog park, and it was pleasantly not icy, and busy with dogs celebrating the holiday. Later I walked across the Franklin Avenue bridge and saw about a thousand crows on the ice of the river, and another thousand in the trees around the river, and another thousand flying in from downtown. Some sort of crow party, I guess. The river gorge echoed with crows crowing.

Song of the day: Joni Mitchell, Black Crow
