The crows and I have an ongoing “conversation”. They have been out of sorts ever since the arrival of Emmie, our little Jack Russell Terrier. Every day they come to claim what used to be theirs — our yard with its towering eucalyptus trees. And every day, Emmie does her best to keep us safe from these dark intruders. They retaliate.

I ask them ever so kindly, and sometimes not so kindly, to stop crapping all over my patio furniture. And they reply unequivocally and with remarkable accuracy.

On this morning I tried to placate them with an offering of peanuts. They loved the nuts. Did it help? Not so much.
