Birds of a Feather?

On a walk this week, the sky blackened with crows. I stopped to watch as they circled a tree—some lighting on it, others frolicking together in the air near it. Like the starlings earlier this fall, they seemed to be preparing for an event.

This brought to mind the scarecrow exhibit I saw last month at the local arboretum. Here’s one of my favorites—the “Free Range, Heritage Breed Urban Chicken Made Entirely of Recycled, Repurposed and Locally Sourced Organic Materials” (as the signage read):

This chicken probably wouldn’t scare any corvids, but it might give them something to think about.
