What isn't sweet is the sound of about 100 mourning crows in the backyard. Yup that's right they were in mourning for one of their own. I had a murder of crows at the soft and gentle hour of 6AM and they were not being soft or gentle in volume. And then there was the body left behind.
I'm no animal CSI specialist so I couldn't say what the cause of death was but I did cordon off the crime scene, take a few photographs of the body and the surrounding evidence. None of the witnesses stuck around long enough for me to properly interview them so as of now it is in the cold case files.
