Crow Surfing

Waiting to cross a busy intersection in the U District last week, I watched a crow nearly t-bone a small sedan. The bird apparently gauged the turbulence generated by the hood of the car and used it to boost itself out of harm’s way over the roof of the vehicle. It was as fancy a piece of flying as I’ve seen, and Feathers flew on to evade a fellow corvid that was after whatever snack it was carrying.
