Crows fly over every morning

American Crows are common throughout much of Michigan year-round. They are intelligent birds that have flourished due to their ability to adapt to a variety of habits. In the fall, crows group together in flocks numbering in the hundreds.

As they fly over every morning they look like a loud, large, unorganized crowd moving in the same direction cawing. While they don't move with the same precision as geese, all their cawing isn't just noise; they're talking to one another, and doing so in a very advanced fashion.
