Young Crows

Yesterday at 7:15 a.m. -
waiting for breakfast....

not edible

learning patience

sharing...not likely

a little sibling rivalry

perhaps a dandelion stalk

ah, real food

Where's Mom?

This morning one of the baby crows did a practice flight and landed in a poplar tree near the garden.

Remarkable Evening Sky

It has been a quiet day here with mostly overcast skies and a rain shower or two.  In the evening when I went out to put some of the potted plants into the greenhouse for the night, I heard some twittering close by.  Looking skyward, I saw several little birds swooping and diving.  I couldn't tell what kind of birds they were, but they seemed to be having a great time up there amongst the clouds.

Windy Day

 A crow perched high on a Spruce tree,
grasps the swaying branch,
while the wind tousles her feathers.
