Life All Birds, All the Time

Down around Montlake circa 4 pm today the yards and sidewalks were FILLED with crows. These yards and sidewalks were covered in soaked, orangey-brown leaves, and the crows were having a field day. Eating the bugs in the decomposing leaves? I’m talking about, oh, sixty thousand crows? Yard after yard after yard. FILLED. Black birds on orange leaves. Feasting.
“And there’s more over there!” said the person who was driving the car I was in.
“We see them.”
“They’re everywhere. Do you see them over there too?”
“Don’t watch the crows. Watch the road.”
