    Wow. That's a really neat shot.

    The crows are insane and have been for several months now. We used to have a large, mostly "dead" in winter, tree a couple of houses North of us and the crows lived there. Annoying as all get out. Then one day we had a huge storm with freak winds and the tree came crashing down onto the roof of the house. No one was hurt but it caused a lot of excitement in the neighborhood that day. The crows moved somewhere else, thank goodness.

    When the crows get out of control head to DCA. Even the crows seem to know it is not worth the effort.

    Re: Crows invading Disneyland

    I have seen that too I actually like the crows especially in NOS around the Mansion they add to the ambience.

    Crows are Migratory and Disneyland is in the route they of course like all the trees there. As migratory birds they are protected by law.

    Crows are actually beneficial to have around and they keep the pigeons under contol which would be much much worse to have around and crows are considered to be in the top five most intelligent animals on earth!

    I think its cool when they are hanging around DL.

    I think they are fine... always have been coming around Disneyland with all the trees there. They don't seem to cause any major problems. Seagulls on the other hand can be really bad and will grab food out of your hands, make a mess all over the parking lot, etc... From what I've noticed the crows seem to keep to themself pretty well. Sure they "invade" the trees but don't really bug people.

    Personally I like how the crows look flying around together, kinda spooky/neat- but I'm sure some guests probably are freaked out by it and complain, lol.

    Re: Crows invading Disneyland

    So right you are! I've rescued hurt and homeless crows many times and I know these birds to be not only extremely intelligent, but also extremely family oriented, loyal and protective of every crow in their flock. They're wonderful animals! The benefits of having them around far out-weigh the few inconveniences they do to people who don't want to tolerate them.

    But they eat baby song birds and mockingbirds. For that, I don't like them.

    We have a flock of wild parrots living in my neighbors huge, tall palm tree.
    They squawk all day long, it's really annoying.
    Could you imagine if these babies flew around DL?
