The crows are doing their quiet sneaking around. They go around inspecting trees looking for a late nest to rob. There have been some Ravens as well. They are so big. The normal crows that live here, hate the Ravens. There have been some pretty spectacular mid-air fights. I am always so surprised at the sound of the birds hitting each other with such force and how violent they are to one another. The Ravens just seem to laugh it off. The regular crows, fly to the top of the old pecan tree and announces to the whole world his misery. It is no wonder I always feel like something is watching me, because well, something is. They are all aware of my movements.
I am very thankful to be alive. Thank you for sharing with me today, the joy of the simple things and the beauty that surrounds me.
