I love those quirky, weird assignments. So when I got this one, I got really excited.
A murder can be used as a collective noun for a group of crows. Well, Sunnyside has a collective group of crows all right, tens and thousands of them in fact. They begin their migration during the twilight hours to the warmer city during the winter months. The city has been struggling for years to minimize the sheer amount of noise and droppings left by the crows.
I went on patrol with a Sunnyside officer whose job was to ward off these crows. I came away with some interesting photos.
