Counting crows in Cloverdale

A reader captures the arresting sight of hundreds of crows flocking together at sunset.

Marlene Delcourt and her husband Brent were out walking on Colebrook Road near Riverbend Winery at sunset Monday night when they came across an arresting sight.

Hundreds of crows were settling down to roost in a set of trees.

“They were so noisy and they just kept coming to land in the trees and on the train tracks,” she told The Reporter. “We watched them for about 15 minutes, and more crows were flying in. It was amazing. I had never seen that before.”

The deafening sound of the crows was amazing, she said.

“When new flocks came in, the noise got louder.”
