I was sitting this morning out by the pool, looking over a small pond.
I was using mental noting and breath counting when I heard the raucous sounds of a large murder of crows in a tall tree about 150 yards from my lanai.
Periodically their voices would get louder and louder – and then flights of 25 to 50 crows would take wing from the tree. this happened 4 or 5 times during my meditation. At the end all the crows had gone and the tree was silent.
