Murder of Crows


What an amazing winter sunset we had last night!  We had been ice skating with good friends when we came outside to a spectacular view.  The air was balmy and we stood in the parking lot outside of the ice skating rink watching the sky change from orange to pink to violet.  If only the utility poles and fence (and houses and road and mounds of gray snow) weren’t in the way of this beautiful scene. 

And to add to this amazing view, on the opposite side of the parking lot , was a murder of crows.  Below I’ve posted a short video I shot.  

I had no idea that a collective noun for a flock of crows was a murder of crows.  And how lucky were we to witness them on the 4th Holy Night.  But what does it all mean?
