Down by Puget Sound it was super low tide. It called me to walk along the shore a couple of miles to where Salmon Creek flows into the sound.
This creek is no slouch and it cuts quite a course across the sandy beach. To give you a feel here is a little video of it bubbling along. Please ignore (or mute) the sound on this – the wind was really blowing.
To my delight and sort of as I expected the crows loved the creek on the beach. They love to bath, drink and play in its babbling waters.
It is a family affair just like us humans. They congregate together and have a good time in the sun & surf.
And a bit closer view of the frolicking.
Still photos don’t really do this fun justice. I took a bit of video and here is this same family in action.
While all this crow fun was going on I was drawn to the grandeur of the day. It included crystal blue water and sky plus a bonus of the Olympic Mountains in the distance.
Back to the crows and the creek. They are just so free and goofy as they bath in the creek.
I was sitting up next to where the creek came out between two large houses. Not far away was this group of crows having a lot of interaction. I suspect it was not all fun but also included pecking order behavior.
Now there you have The Beach, the Creek & a Murder of Crows.
