    That's odd- I was always taught that if you saw a lot of crows - they were rooks, and if you saw a solitary rook, it's a crow!

    Although it's a pic from Nat Geo I think it's photoshopped because if you look closely there are mirror images of crows and also it's a magic eye picture of the Pope playing poker with Colonel Gaddafi and Wayne Rooney.....

    Acceptable collective names for crows and rooks:

    Building of rooks
    Clamor of rooks
    Storytelling of rooks

    Storytelling of crows
    Murder of crows

    Collective nouns:

    A chatter of starlings
    A murmuration of starlings
    A scourge of starlings
