CHARLOTTETOWN -- In a scene that could have been pulled straight from a horror flick, a dark and menacing wave of crows has blackened the sky over a Prince Edward Island park. People living in the area surrounding Victoria Park on the Charlottetown waterfront say they are at their wit's end and are pleading with civic leaders to do something about the estimated 25,000 birds squawking and defecating around their homes and favourite walking places. City council is considering buying a $5,200 crow deterrence system called the Phoenix Wailer, which relies on high-pitched bird distress and predator calls to scare away crows.

Where's Peg Bowen when you need her? I'm sure she'd have a magic crystal just for the occassion!

Wow.....that's quite a story. I love crows, so I would probably be pleased by such an event. There is a rather large murder of crows that roosts in the trees and park next to my house, and I love it when they are flying around overhead, and cawing.

What can I say, I love all things spooky.

I don't mind them. Until they start dropping things on my car, that is.
