Attack on the Rookery




I was walking with Bear along this canal and listening to the birds (why people wear headphones I am not sure, when there are birdsongs and rustlings and the patter of little paws). I heard the crows talking amongst themselves with rowdy shouting conversation.
Suddenly .... a bird came from across the canal on wide soft wings with a short body. The crows started screaming and acting INSANE. I wondered what kind of hawk it was, then heard the hoot of an owl as it flew away. The crows settled down instantly, back to their raucous poker game, I guess.
