Waiting it out

The hardy American Crow doesn’t seem to mind this delayed spring but then it helps to be covered in black feathers on a cold sunny day. Crows mate for life and can live to be 25 years or more. Revered by native populations for their durability and willingness to eat just about anything to survive, crows flock together at night it’s thought to help ward off their arch enemy the Great Horned Owl.

    This crow looks like he is checking you out rather than the other way around. I had no idea that crows mated for life. Quite a commitment. Hugs, M
