A family have been left baffled after spotting a crow apparently frozen in the air on the school run.

Mum Kayleen Bowman, shared the bizarre clip on her Facebook which appeared to show a black crow suspended in the sky near some overhead wires in Gallump, New Mexico, US.

Throughout the entire 15-second clip, the object that bears a startling similarity to a bird doesn’t appear to move an inch.

Kayleen wrote on Saturday in the caption: “The other morning Jay was taking Lilly to school.

“Lilly said, ‘Look that bird is frozen!’ Jay stopped the car to see what she meant.

“They saw this crow ‘frozen’ in the sky. Looks like it was in the middle of flapping its wings.

“Jay said you can see the beak moving. This still boggles my mind. What do you think?”

Temperatures in New Mexico can plummet to -15C in the mornings at this time of year, but for a bird to hang in mid-air defies the laws of gravity.

Her friends were shocked and one compared the scene like “a glitch in the Matrix”.

One joked: “Exe.spybird has stopped working.”

Another suggested: “Portal? 5g messing with the birds? Proof we live in a giant bubble? Omg!!!”

A few others suggested Kayleen threw a stone at the bird to see whether it was alive.

A study by Standford University explains birds can remain motionless in the air as long as they fly into the wind at a speed equal to that of the wind.

They can perform stationary flights as long as they are flying with headwinds.

On Monday, thousands of grey-tailed grackles descended on a carpark outside a supermarket in Houston, Texas.

Shoppers were forced to flee to safety as they hurriedly ran across the parking lot.

Local news media reported that the spectacle happens every year when the birds migrate but some people insisted it was a “bad omen”.
