The Goodwill Raven

Here is the entrance of our Goodwill.


Walking inside today, I heard loud caws. CAW CAW CAW. Looking into the parking lot and up, I saw this.


Instead of a watch dog, it was a watch crow! He was looking all around. And every time anyone drove in and got out of their car, he cawed and cawed loudly.


Uh oh! He's spotted my camera! Gotta run, see ya later!

You have changed my mind. Off all the books I read, Raven seems to be a bad omen type of bird. But it look so nice here in the photo

Great photos and close-ups of the Crow. It makes a lovely header shot and I always enjoy those. I have read that crows are very smart birds. I read that they will stand on anthills and let the ants climb on on them. Then, the bird will rub the ants into their feathers. It is called anting and is used to ward off parasites. Ants can also cause birds to get drunk from the formic acid released from the ant’s bodies. Isn’t that amazing? Thank you for sharing this super post. They are always fun and very interesting. Have a great day Ginny :)

They talk to each other too! My mom had one that would sit on a telephone line overlooking her yard. When she would throw out her stale bread that watch crow would caw, caw, caw and soon there would be a whole yard full of crows gobbling up the bread!

as he was sitting, sitting, sitting he was saying nevermore, nevermore. Poe scared me silly when I was in highschool... great shots of the raven. the crows or black birds at WM right now are really BIG

Sandra said...

you helped answer a question bob asked me yesterday. he saw a black bird, just one, he said it was the biggest he has ever seen, because of your post I researched, and if it is one or 2 and big it is a raven, crows are smaller and stay in groups. now we know

I learned something about crows and ravens! This one is taking his job as watchman seriously. lol

I have always liked hearing the crows cawing. Strange, huh? I've never heard anyone else ever say that. lol! Did you find anything you liked at Good Will?

You are the best at finding different and interesting things. Very unusual.
