It may come as no surprise to you, ladies and gentlemen, that I am not as clever as I think I am. Now I am in a bit of a pickle corvid-wise. You see, I have a lot of currawong photos that I hoped to share with you for the Corvid-2020 Weekly Challenge, but eek, I’ve discovered after starting this challenge that currawongs are not actually corvids (of the family Corvidae). In fact, the only corvids in Australia are the crows and ravens. Unfortunately, I have limited raven photos. Do you think that the powers-that-be will consider, in these dark Covid-19 times, the scouring of the city for ravens to be an essential activity? I guess we shall find out. I fear I might have to resort to some very bad poetry for this challenge.
The good news is that there are plenty of different species of corvids in other parts of the world with the Corvidae family encompassing ravens, crows, magpies, jays and nutcrackers. So check out your corvid photo, poetry and story archives and join the challenge. Aussies, we will just have to make the best of it.

I hope you can join me.
