a murder of crows

I have been hunting high & low looking for a crow stamp, but coming up empty. :( I've checked online, I've searched row after row of stamps at the craft stores... The other day I found a Dawn Houser with 4 birds on a branch. They look like cardinals to me but what do I know. I contemplated buying it, but changed my mind. They weren't right... not scraggly enough, not sinister at all. So I walked away.

Then, I wandered into another store yesterday and found the same stamp. It still didn't work for me, but I thought, MAYBE, if I sketch thru it a bit, MAYBE I could make them look like crows? Elongate the beaks, shaggy up the feathers, scratch out the tail... Well, I bought it and I tried.

I'm not sure if I pulled it off, tho...

Do these look like crows to you???

answering my own question... no, these don't look like crows! Back to the drawing board (literally, I think I'm going to have to draw my own to get what I'm looking for!)
