Crows, crows, crows

These American Crows were part of a large flock of about 125-150 that I found just east of Canon City, CO today. Many of them were on a gravel bar in the Arkansas River where they could get a long drink of water and a refreshing bath--both harder to come by in this area due to moderate drought conditions.
We don't see such large numbers of crows in this area often and their presence may be due to the drought as they can find more food and more reliable water in lower elevation area than in the Wet Mountain Valley. SeEtta
