Magpies, Ravens, and Crows--Oh My!

I'd love to make and trade art featuring corvids (the fancy name for the crow family). I know there are crow lovers out there! Get in touch. CAW!

Received from Ann Golden  with a very up to date comment. Since I am here,  news from my  crows. Yesterday the parents were feeding the youngster on top of a tree and after they encouraged it to fly. Seemed a bit worried and not very keen, they were very high up.

Ann, welcome. I am so sorry you lost your crows and the trees too. Years ago I had a crow near our house i used to feed with dog biscuits. One day while I was feeding it a band of young crows attacked it right in front of me. I managed to shoo them off and my crow survived but I did not see it again. The band stayed around so I suppose it was scared off. i still miss it when I go to the shops. Now I got a couple living right in front of my house where there is a group of trees and I saw them yesterday with a baby. The adults were drinking at the bird bath by my front door and the youngster was looking on. I could not get to my phone quickly enough to take a photo .

Loved all the images of corvids that have been posted.Sunce the 60 foot cedar adjoining my back yard was felled , I do not have 

crows frequenting my b ack yard and do miss them.For fellow crow lovers I would like to recommend the film Tokyo Waka a lyrical look at the city and its love hate relationship with crows.I saw it some yeRs back at an international film festival  and discovered that at the moment you can see for free by doing. Trial of Fandor via Amazon.I will be sending out some crow pieces to those of you who still seem active.

How cute, Martha. :)

I saw the crow that usually patrols the front of the house with a white something in his beak, which turned out to be a piece of bread, obviosly very dry because he dropped it in the bird bath to soften it and then came back several times to eat it through the morning.

You might be right, Martha...

I think your crow is sun bathing. He stetches to feel the heat on his chest and throat. Could it have a sore throat?

Here's a picture of a crow that symbolizes how we all may feel sometimes...

Very odd position. I first thought the crow might be dead and made some noise to attract its attention. It looked at me, then got back to this odd position. I've no idea what it is doing.

I am ready to send on Pam's Add & Pass, which is quite gorgeous --

Sorry this is such a crappy photo, but you can see how nice it is with Heleen's, Pam's and my adds so far. Who wants this?

Pam's Crows and my Magpie (and twitterbirds) are on their way to you, Toni!
