Crows show how to hold election

I was out in my garage when I heard what sounded like a big flock of crows, so I went out to see what was happening. In the hemlock trees there were some crows landing, one at the very top and one on each side of the tree about 5 feet down filling about 18 trees. They were calling for more to come, and they were coming from every direction to fill the trees with many birds. The three crows sitting on the top of the middle tree started flopping their wings and the flock quieted down.
I went in the house to have my wife come out to look at them. By the time she arrived they were starting to leave, going in every direction.
I wonder who they voted for? At least they didn't take billions of dollars and over a year's time.
