Is it crow season, or what? The phrase "a murder of crows", which means a group of crows, seems to be popping up all over the Internet this early March 2011. Enjoy the beautiful photographic and verbal evidence:
- Look at my Facebook friend the spoken word artist Bao Phi's photo of one of said murders of crows.
- Read this article by my Twitter friend and ad man Jim Mitchem, and be sure to see the photo at the bottom of the post.
- Check out the Twitter search for a murder of crows.
I took the following short video clip of a group of birds of some kind--I'm not sure if it's a murder of crows, but they're definitely birds, which I know from paying attention in biology class as well as by dint of having a pulse and at least one functioning eyeball in conjunction with an adequately reliable visual cortex--a few days ago out my front window (not my Rear Window) before noticing the crow meme that seems to be taking the Internet by stealth:
Happy spring to you all. May the crows signal the coming snowmelt. Look out for homicidal ravens.
