Sit Down, Shut Up, Think about God

So today I was attacked by a crow. There he was: sitting all black and shiny and huge and evil on a fence as I walked by ON THE WAY OUT OF CHURCH!!!! I swear we made eye contact. HE (aren't all crow's male?) snarled something at me in badbird vocabulary. Really, I mean it, the critter snarled and curled his lips before screeching a menacing crowish growl...well it looked like curled lips. He flew straight up and away all nonchalant. I sputtered a silent message of gratitude. A few seconds passed. Without warning crowmonster popped a sly and speedy turn back and dive-bombed my head. What's that about? I said more than a few non church words. A dark rainbow reason to stay home on a Sunday morning.

Crows are very smart and very noisy. I would not want to be attacked by one...but since I no longer attend church I guess I am safe.

Goodness, that would scare me for sure....... sorry, but I had to chuckle, as I imagined your look of fright.

Defending it's nest. So very sorry.

And PS: I flat out really love the painting, the contrasts, and the color choices too. Thank you.

What is it about crows??? I love them. Smart, crafty, very social--learning that they were supposed to be evil or bad (or whatever) wasn't part of my family folklore as I was coming up. Guess I'm glad for that.

Glad you are safe and happy I have a new computer - a few hours sitting on my desk. Hope I can begin to feel comfortable with this new friend - even the keyboard feels different!!!

Ahhh crows are so cool. There was a friend with one, a very smart bird. So much more interesting than say a parakeet!
