As the crow flies


We found out recently that crows like to eat peanuts in the shell. They crack the shell and then eat the peanut inside. We have hundreds of crows in the area. In the morning, they fly from the river, eastward. In the afternoon, they fly back to the river. Groups of crows (or, more accurately, a “murder” of crows) frequently lounge in our neighborhood.

The cats now have a daily morning TV show called “Feeding the Crows.” They look forward to this every morning!

Quotes of the Day

I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing than to teach ten thousand stars how not to dance. (e.e. cummings)

In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence. (Robert Lynd)

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark. (Rabindranath Tagore)

  1. Crow TV! That must be such fun! We see crows flying sometimes, but usually don’t see them close like that. I didn’t know crows crack shell open and eat peanuts inside. I wonder if they like peanuts already out of shells, too.

  2. These are some of the most excellent quotes. Every spring when Mom starts working in the gardens, she finds peanuts that the squirrels have buried during the winter. We don’t know who feeds them the peanuts. We feed them sunflower seeds along with the birds. We had no idea that crows ate peanuts. So nice that they provide bird TV everyday.
