I’m sure most of you know that a group of crows is called a murder.
Just wondering? Does anyone know how many crows it takes to make a murder of crows?
One, is one, two is a couple, and three is a few...but how many is a murder? Without Googling take a guess. I will tell you at the end of this post.
Every September I pull out the Fall décor only to switch it over to Halloween in Oct. This year I decided to try something a little different.
I decorated my mantel with crows. Thinking that it would work for both. I may throw in a few more items for Halloween, but won’t change it out entirely. Trying to save me a little work.
I started with an old black window that I had modge podged a newspaper banner to last year. Placed a wool pumpkin and crow upon one of my vintage scales. Added a few real and faux branches, a recycled glass bottle, a second crow and pumpkin, a paper chain, a couple of glass balls, and a sunflower garland. Oh, and a large wooden crow.
I was pretty sure that three would not make a murder. I have more crows but think that they are packed in my Halloween boxes.
This party animal crow makes me laugh.
I added this dowel tree that has a whimsical crow to the hearth. I placed it in my vintage shopping basket with a couple of giant acorns.
I have the perfect raven that I bought to go in this birdcage last year. Oh raven, wherefore art thou?
I also added this pillow to my green chair.
What do you think? Getting closer to a murder? I thought that a murder would have to consist of at least six crows.
Nope, according to google you only need four. Here’s another bit of trivia. What is the difference between a raven and a crow?
The name "crow" is used for an entire family of birds, Corvidae, that includes the raven species. To put it simply, all ravens are crows.
Differences in Size
The most noticeable difference between a crow and a raven is size; in most cases, the largest black birds in this genus are known as ravens. Common Ravens are noticeably larger than American Crows
Well at least I got that one right. I thought that Ravens were just a bigger crow.
