Thanks again.

Those are Dunlin's. They fly in synchronization. When they change direction they change
from dark to light or vice versa, displaying their white underside or their dark backs. Beautiful
to watch.

Ravens are bigger, and the tails are different. Tails on crows are more squared off and ravens are spade shaped.

Tom I had to look up that "Dunlin" one. Like my bird book.

Also, if you ever hear a raven, you'll know its not a crow: beautiful vocalizations !

I don't know much about either bird other than ravens are pretty danged smart. They know how to unzip and unbuckle tank/gear bags. Those little buggers in Yellowstone are quick too.

A friend explained it to me this way. Ravens are soaring birds and crows aren't. Which means that ravens flap - flap - - - soar - - - flap - flap.
While crows continually flap.

Much like eagles and hawks etc.

Does anyone know why Crows pack up in the hundreds and fly together?

They've been flying by my house at the exact same time of day headed the same direction for about a week now.
