A flock of crows is properly called a "murder." Yes, it is. And every year, every day between late Spring and early Autumn, a tremendous murder of crows, estimated between 50,000 and 70,000, descends at dusk upon Auburn's historic Fort Hill Cemetery like something out of an Alfred Hitchcock classic (based upon a short story by Daphne DeMaurier).
Before Fort Hill Cemetery was a "cemetery" it was an ancient burial ground. Many people believe that the crows are a manifestation of the spirits of the departed.
