Is that not appropriately called a murder?
It's a murder of crows, yes, but these aren't crows. They're much bigger than crows and bigger than ravens. I thought they might be black vultures, but the head isn't right.
Black vultures indeed. I saw them on my way into town. In the spirit of the season
Carole those are most certainly Black Vultures ... Not Turkey Vultures if that is what you mean by 'head'
The photos of black vultures I found online gave the impression that a black vulture's entire head is gray. These guys only had gray beaks and some gray that extended up toward the top of their head. I didn't mean the shape of their heads.
Having to look up the venery, I've just learned that this is "a wake of [black] vultures." How perfect.
