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?
