Crow Commute | Event | Since 1971, crows from all over Vancouver have been blackening the evening skies in Hitchcockian fashion as they fly to their evening roosts in Burnaby. The Commute has even been immortalized by the hardcore band Anchoress in their song Murder in the Sky Over Burnaby.

Usage: “Oh my God! Look at all these birds. It’s the FUCKING APOCALYPSE! No wait…sorry…it’s just the Crow Commute.”
