Murdering Crows




2 Carrion Crows murdered a magpie today in the field next to the house.They pecked it to death repeatedly smashing it in the head till it died,it put up a good fight for about 10 minutes it tried to get away,but in the end it was outnumbered.I got it in the scope for a while but it was too grusome to watch.......They didnt eat it,just killed it.................

Hence the collective term "Murder of Crows".

Id have thought the other Magpies would have seen the crows off?

I did once see 2 Magpies doing exactly the same thing to an adult Woodpigeon in Shibden Park (May. that was gruesome too and prolonged for nearly an hour!
