Pretty trees all in a row but it’s crows’ kingdom! November 23, 2007

Posted by asianpixmen in Fauna/Animals, Malaysia, Nature, Places.


These well pruned trees, tall and stately, neatly in a row too, are located along Jalan Burhanuddin in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, KL. During the day, the trees provide shelter for cars parked beneath it but after 6pm, any motorist who’s desperate enough to park along the parking bays opposite the row of shops where the trees are, will be subjected to the droppings of crows.

After dusk, thousands of crows returned to these trees from various parts of Klang Valley. The daytime when they foraged for food would probably have been fruitful… I mean their bellies. So there is a constant rain of crow droppings like how the Allied planes bombarded war-time Germany.

Recently, I was foolhardy enough to ignore warnings and was aghast to find out minutes later that my poor car which was just cleaned and washed was then covered by “gifts” from the crows.

City Hall shooters sometimes come and take pot shots at these feathered pests but it won’t be long before the crows return to their bad habits. Crows are actually quite smart. Try disturbing one of their young and they will turn on the culprit like a pack of wolves.
