We have a once-beautiful white birch tree in the backyard that seems to have mostly died over the winter, as now it only has leaves on a few branches near the bottom. This is a pretty creepy vista, as dead trees have a sort of horror movie look to start with, all the worse because the white bark of the birch makes it look like a negative image of a tree, and Hollywood long ago taught us that negatives are a harbinger of terror. That's all bad enough to start with, but now that my bird feeder is all the rage with the local avian community, it has become a favorite haunt of a murder of crows, another horror cliché. It can be pretty unsettling to look out there and seeing more than a dozen crows perched on those dead white branches. Watching... waiting.
