A common sight around here, too. The ravens and the crows vie for the leftover food from the kids. Still, they do clean up the playground.

A familiar sight here, too. They're doing their part.

I'm surprised that they haven't figured out how to use a phone and order fresh carryout for themselves. :)

yes, when i was in the city we got possom and such eating trash. Now in the country more, the birds have the air and water as source--

always reminds me of Robert Lowell's poem Skunk Hour

I'm convinced that rows are one of those species that will survive us all! City, town, countryside, beach -- they survive and thrive no matter what~

I needed a photo of a crow a while back :) that would have done a treat - kept trying to photograph them and they would fly away too quick (clever birds those crows).

I love rooks - they are my favourite bird as we have a large rookery close by us. At present they spend all day picking the cones off our Scots Pines, flying into the field with them and then dropping them on the ground. Any idea why they would do this?

Weaver - I would guess that they're trying to dislodge the seeds from the cones so that they can eat them.

very crafty are crows and they know how to work together.
