    Ken Hartke commented on the blog post, Rook

    I've made a whole career in retirement of being endearingly eccentric. I seems to work better for men. If you happen on to a near-70 year old out flying a kite it will probably be me. Regarding Rooks...We have many Crows here, including the three that constantly monitor my comings and goings. They are playful, crafty, and intelligent birds -- somewhat apart from the mundane world of chirpy, seed-pecking songbirds. A collection of Crows can go by many names -- a Murder of Crows is just one. Although they may sometimes plot murder they seldom carry it out. I prefer a lessor appellation: a Parliament of Crows. https://malpaisweb.wordpress.com/2017/04/26/three-crows/
