Welcome to Week 3 of my Corvid-2020 Weekly Challenge.  Corvids are birds belonging to the Corvidae family, encompassing ravens, crows, magpies, jays and nutcrackers.  So check out your corvid photo, poetry, music and story archives and join the challenge.

My son, the naturalist, tells me there are two types of corvids in Canberra, Australia —   the Australian Raven and the Little Raven.  He also tells me they are about the same size and he can’t tell them apart.  I don’t know about you, ladies and gentlemen, but I find that a tad confounding.  I thought my corvid choices were limited, but I discovered last week that New Zealand has no indigenous corvids.  Well, that cinches it!  I can’t migrate there, even if Jacinda Adern is NZ’s answer to Gandhi.

Anyway, as my husband and I were driving along the street on our way to somewhere exercise-like (don’t worry we kept our distance from people), my True Love spotted a raven.  I half expected the cops to pull us over for non-essential photo taking , but we escaped notice.   Unfortunately, my camera was on the wrong setting (long story) so the photo didn’t turn out well, but I didn’t have time to muck around.  Do you think this raven was giving us a sign/alibi?


You can participate in the Corvid-2020 Weekly Challenge by creating a pingback to this post (my pingback approval settings are set up for manual approval, so it may take a little while for your pingback to appear) and/or by leaving a hyperlink to your submission in the comments.   Tag your post Corvid-2020 or C20WC.  I really do hope you will join in.

Kind Regards.

Also cawing in for the Ragtag Daily Prompt — Shambles.

  1. I love your photo of the raven-maybe-a-crow – the silhouetted gray trees behind, the sign pointing somewhere, but I can’t tell the destination.

    Getting pulled over for non-essential photo-taking – pretty funny until you have to post bail – just saying.

    We celebrated the first seder of Passover last night, our 2 sons and their families gathered as we around via Facetime 3 groups in 3 locales. I’d gotten most of my Passover food almost 2 months earlier when I spotted it on the grocery shelves. Wanting to avoid past years’ scrambles, I opted for immediate purchase and so had all the items that can be a challenge to find at the last minute.

    Except I’d forgotten Passover wine. Since I never buy alcohol (or pet food) I never go down those aisles. Last night our Passover wine was tea – that, I had.

    We are all making do as best we can. Stay well, Tracy.

    1. The sign says “Shops”, Sharon. 🙂 Our jurisdiction is not as locked down as some of our neighbouring states, with higher numbers of infection. Still, I included the line about non-essential photography because sometimes the rules are not all that clear to us dumb schmucks. 🙂

      That was a good foresight to do your seder shopping early, Sharon. In future, I think we will all be a little more prepared because, well, you never know…. It must have been nice to have your sons and their families together, kind of. I hope many more follow your lead and act sensibly so that they can hopefully be together next year.

      We have our plan, Sharon, and are sticking to it. Much like you I suspect. Take care.
