Crows at Olympia’s West Bay Park

I was at Olympia’s West Bay Park when I caught a couple shots of crows.

West Bay Park is a nice little spot in a quieter section of Olympia. I visit it often to read or just look out over the water and think, but today I wanted to make this post specifically to share a couple shots of crows that I got.

The crow on the ground was doing some of the strangest things I’ve ever seen a crow do. I wasn’t sure if it was laying eggs or was in some kind of pain or something else, but it kept walking in little circles and occasionally laying itself out, as can be seen in the photo, and opening its mouth to the sky. I’d almost say it was “writhing,” if such an action makes sense in a crow. It was really strange and it continued for several minutes.
