THEY MEET AROUND THE CORN
Crows and how they love to socialize and gather before it’s time to roost at night. In the summer, Chilliwack crows and crows from all over meet around a cornfield on top of buildings in the trees and on the ground at the end of my road. Hundreds, sometimes over a thousand, I would think from what I have seen.
Across the field, the #10 building is a very popular spot for the Crows
Crows love to play and race across the corn and call back to each other. I think they even cheer each other on when they are flying in groups across the field. To me, that is what it sounds like. I do wish I knew for sure. I know they practice flying and calling each group from building to building because sometimes I watch them and they are all just waiting for something and I don’t know what it is, but then you hear a caw and a few of them fly and then another call and more go and this goes on for a while and then they are allowed to do whatever they want. I guess it really is something you have to see to understand. Not only that, but I do believe it has something to do with watching over their area and watching for predators and training the younger crows what to do, but I could be wrong. I will say, however, that they are extremely well organized for whatever they are doing.
