We have a nest of crows in our back yard for the first time since we have lived here.
Their distinctive caws fill the air from morning till dusk.
Clearly they agree with Hillary Clinton that it takes a village; one huge baby crow flew the nest a little too soon, before its tail feathers had completely come in.
At least four adults hover close and scream at any human, cat or dog in the general vicinity.
My friend, colleague, and show-partner Melissa Rackliff has an abundance of crows (or maybe they’re ravens- I’m not sure that I know the difference) in her very nice new paintings hanging currently at CORE New Art Space. I have work hanging there, too.
The First Friday Artwalk for this show will be on July 2, from 6 to 9 PM.
Allison Moorer’s new release “Crows” is beautiful. I want to listen again & again.
