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.
