first thing in the morning,  so bleary eyed I can barely see, waiting for my coffee, outside the age old enmity between crows and owls is loudly played out.  I’ve often wondered what that’s all about.

I mean, crows will harry any raptor, especially if they’ve got food, but something about the harassment  is harsher, like it’s personal.  Crows will come from afar when they hear the cry that an Owl is about by day.

The Native Americans surely had a story about this-  The grudge between Owl and Crow, but to my knowledge, it is lost.  If anybody ever runs across it, I’d love to hear.

now, coffee…
