The winter weather caused a circle of crows to huddle close 

Crows Feathers fell to the ground when they shivered looking like ashes from a cigarette on the snow covered ground.

"Your a bird of a feather" taunted a Cardinal standing on a branch of a neighboring tree" 

"Well we flock together" said the crows in unison

A boy huddled behind a tree hearing the cawing of the crows grabbed a stone waiting for the right moment and tossed it as hard as he could  Miraculous the boy thought as the stone hit

He killed all of them with one throw 

Crow carcasses and feathers fell from the tree.  The cardinal watching the crow feathers float in the air remarked, "Feathers of crows, and birds of a feather may flock together but they all got killed by the same stone"
