We came home from work one night last week to find this fine specimen of a crow perched atop a tree outside our garage. Despite the car, the garage doors, our conversation, and other disruptions, he didn’t move. I was surprised until I saw a group of five crows in the backyard. He was the sentinel, I assume, and judged us no immediate threat. Nor did he abandon his post.
I don’t know the significance of such a sentinel or of five crows, but it seems it should be a sign of some sort – much too archetypal and mystical to be just a family of birds migrating through.
Skywatch is a meme, a communal sharing, of photos of the sky from around the world. It’s just-for-fun, not-for-profit, and noncompetitive. To participate, blog a photo which includes the sky, then add its link to the master list at the Skywatch website. Enjoy, and visit the rest of the Skywatch posts when they are posted at 7:30 GMT today.
