Colorful Crow Highway

Coming in from the north.

The crow highway was in full swing at dusk with thousands of crows flying south over the Rio Grande and bosque.

Heading south.

The Sandias in dusk purple make a beautiful background.

A lone crow taking a break in a cottonwood that stands between the clearwater ditch and the irrigation ditch.

  1. Nice number in that murder. My great uncle told me when I was a young “whippersnapper” that a large group of crows was called a murder of crows. I always remembered that of all things.

    • That’s true. It’s seems strange, but then agian, Alfred Hitcock took it literally. Thanks, Maj & Sher.

    • You rode over the Rio Grande on your Route 66 journey. Depending on the time of year it was, the Rio Grande probably wasn’t very impressive. You are absolutely right about the colors out here. Thanks, Holly.

      • I’m not aware of seeing the Rio Grande on our journey out west on 66. I must not have been very impressed. If I go again which is not likely I will stop and take a good look!
