Backyard Inhabitants

I love observing our resident crows and their antics. The species of crows living at the bottom of the yard bordering the wetlands is identified as Fish Crow. Fish Crows fit the standard crow shape: hefty, well-proportioned birds with heavy bills, sturdy legs, and broad wings. At rest, Fish Crows’ wings fall short of their medium-length, square tails. Fish crows are on the larger side, and at first sight we wondered if they were ravens. But the beaks gave them away…

Our crows are lively and communicate loudly when our ShihTzus decide to explore the yard. The neighbour feeds them, I just enjoy their chatter and how they patrol the yard, moving from tree to tree, hopping from branch to branch.

Happy Monday. Best wishes, Anna
