Has anyone wondered why there are no longer any pigeons in Westmount Park? (A municipal by-law forbids anyone feeding them). It appears that their absence has been replaced by a multitude of crows. In literary circles, a flock of crows is called a “murder” – animal biologists; however, call them a “flock”.
The past few early mornings I have been greeted with a multitude of their calls to one another that start just before dawn. They are a fascinating bird – they can recognize people and will follow them (only them) if you offer food!
