Aren't those Jackdaws?
Jackdaws are part of the raven (Corvus) species. I think your option is more accurate. Title changed. Thanx.
Birds are such socially complex creatures... When the camera pans up to show more Jackdaws, it reminds me of the book/movie The Birds, and how vicious they can be. Poor owl!
