I am never certain whether I like Crows or not. They rank up there, as dastardly creatures, with the Loon (a maniacal, saavy, red eyed bird I have done battle with on B.C. lakes when fly fishing). Today, this Crow sat atop a limber branch. It let me walk fairly close by to take a couple of photos. 

“Cain lifts Crow, that heavy black bird and strikes down Abel. Damn, says Crow, I guess this is just the beginning.”  Sherman Alexie
