We’ve had the wildest winter I can remember. In Portland, Oregon, the winters are usually drippy and overcast. However, this year’s winter has been cold and snowy. It has produced some great photographs.
This is a photograph of crows sitting in snowy trees in downtown Portland, Oregon. The photograph was taken by C.S.I. Walker Berg of the Portland Oregon Police Bureau. This was his view from the Justice Center’s 12th floor. Portland has enough of a crow problem that they have begun to employ falconers to move block-by-block, hunting the black birds.
It looks like the crows are settled in for the night, though and any hawks will just have to wait for morning.
The police department shared the image dubbed “Crows on Snow” on Facebook and Twitter where it quickly went viral.
My first thought was “Wow,” and then I thought:
From the sublime to the ridiculous in one easy jump.
