A Family Affair

While we hide inside from both virus and cold, I thought I’d share these feathered cousins with you all.

Covid and corvids, alliterative word-play ties. Just a trifle, for now, for my Jackdaw followers.

Hope you enjoy my occasional ‘cute little chatters.‘ Please don’t give me the bird.

        I quite like all crows really. They are all very intelligent and characterful. There’s a traveller who we see in Melmerby occasionally, he usually has a crow perched on his shoulder. I always say hello to single magpies and I have been trying to get a photo of a jay for years, they usually cackle and fly off mocking me. I sometimes have jackdaws visit my bird feeders, though they do make a mess and I was very happy to see a Hooded Crow when in Scotland a couple of years ago.

  1. Didn’t realize that “jackdaw” was, essentially, a European crow! Now the title “City Jackdaw,” for your blog and the old Manchester penny magazine, holds much more meaning for me here in the Land of Raven (https://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/totems-to-turquoise/native-american-cosmology/raven-the-trickster). P.S. The raven makes an appearance in Chapter 39 of my memoir, a pretty special chapter that I’m grateful to be reminded of. Cheers! 🙏🏼
