Then later, I saw a crow, a huge big o' thang, sitting in my yard. In fact, it could have been a raven, but I don't think it was that big. He eating what appeared to be a small rock. You know, like a piece of gravel, the white gravel we use for decorative gardens. But it was almost perfectly round. And I realized that the damn bird was eating the egg of another bird, almost certainly stolen from a nest! Vile creature!
A few days ago I was driving back from town, and I saw the strangest thing of all. A crow was flying along, and there was a little bird of some kind attacking him! The smaller bird was zooming up underneath, apparently pecking at the crow's belly and under wings, and he was apparently making painful contact, because the crow was dodging away every time! My best guess is the crow had robbed the nest of the smaller bird. Vile creature, again!
And farther down the road I spied a turkey vulture sitting on a fence post. Weird looking birds they are. blech.
Interesting how many birds have been in my view lately. Wonder that that's all about?
