Note: Slightly larger version HERE if you're interested. If you're not interested just throw the napkin I wrote my number on in the trash. Don't worry, I'm used to it -- especially right in front of me.

This is a photo of a flock of crows (aka a horde, hover, muster, parcel or murder) roosting in the branches of several large, snow-covered trees in Portland, Oregon. The shot was captured by Portland Police crime scene investigator Walker Berg (great name for a crime scene investigator, by the way), presumably after doing a little bit of whatever the people on those CSI shows do (i.e. enhancing blurry video to crystal-clarity). Beautiful, isn't it? Unfortunately I can't really look at it for that long without being reminded of that summer I got really bad fleas. What was that, 2015? "Why are you scratching?" Man, flea collars don't work for shit.

Thanks to JD, who agrees there is no way those crows aren't up to no good.
