Wild Bird Wednesday #208–American Crow

Wild Bird Wednesday–American Crow, Adult and Juvenile

Crows are usually skittish, but lately, these two spend a fair amount of time in our yard. Often I hear the caw of the juvenile somewhere on the roof, and usually find the adult looking for food, or waiting for the juvenile to join it on a bare branch in the oak tree. Normally skittish, it seems odd the adult will sit atop the feeder pole, looking down at the empty dish until I fill it. Yes, I’m easily trained. 

The smaller songbirds keep their distance until the crows leave–usually with a Northern Mockingbird on their tail, telling them they’ve worn out their welcome.

Share Your World–2016 Week 29

Share Your World

Here are Cee’s questions for this week’s Share Your World. I hope you’ll share your answers, too! 

What is the perfect pizza?

I don’t eat it often, but my favorite is from Pizza Hut, a personal pan pizza with red onions and green peppers.

What is your favorite time of day?

My favorite time of day is when I first wake up, before I get out of bed. Those last few minutes snuggled in there are bliss.

Show us two of your favorites photographs.  The photos can be from anytime in your life span.  Explain why they are your favorite.


I like this one because the glass reflects the brilliant blue sky behind me.

Miss Z

Miss Z–This one cracks me up! 

Complete this sentence:  I’m looking forward to…. 

Wednesday. Tuesday is shaping up to be a busy day.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I’m grateful to make progress on cleaning and getting rid of clutter. (Where does all that paper come from?) I look forward to writers group this week.

This week we are looking for things that start with C, week’s favorite, and unique perspective.

The juvenile Osprey awaiting dinner at sunset is my unique perspective.

Here’s my recently-created Cozy Corner, with a chair that rocks and swivels. I have more items to add to the shelves. 


My favorite this week is another visit from the Monarch Butterfly. I’m glad it came to the bird-feeder pole so I could get a better shot than last week. I don’t know what it hoped to find there, so I assume it stopped by for the photo op.
