Children's LiteratureHave you ever seen a group of crows on a tree or power line pole? Did you know they might be mobbing to protect themselves from a predator such as a hawk or owl? Have you seen a large group of crows in the dusk, gathered to roost in a tree? These groups of crows are roosting in areas used for years and then abandoned as crows move to a different area.

The book is a perfect supplemental research text for any third through sixth grade science curriculum. 2005, Carolrhoda Books Inc/Lerner Publishing, Ages 7 to 10.
