Welcome, absent soul. Are you of Portuguese or Brazilian descent?

Me too! I eat it all the time!!

And ditto your feelings toward the 'wee folk'...

PS: to the Spotted-crowphilic Ladybird - be sure to check out the FAQs to answer many questions this recent 'newbie' learned, and the old hands are a great source of advice and support. Ask for help from anyone with [Carpal Tunnel] under their name. The other two recent posters (AnnaS and etaoin) are quite helpful (and seem nice to boot!). There are some less nice, which will become obvious soon enough.

Welcome a-board!

Gotta recommend a book - The Mind of the Raven. A lot of it is the author's anecdotal experience with corvids he's befriended, but it goes into quite a bit of detail about the parts of their lives that we never see. The boyf is a bit of a crow fanatic, so I got him this book for his birthday last year - worth a read!

Oh, and even though I'm not around much, I'm one of the nice ones.

Hello mon RM,

Ah yes, it is actually beginning to make some sense already. Who would have thought. Thank you for the advice, which I am sure I will soon be able to put to good use. I am off to do a mid-day crow walk because it is Jazz Festival time in Van. and I am off this evening, to The Cellar. I will tell my 'biker's of the sky' that you said hello!
Linda

Try your hand at some of the games - these folks are amazing!

Like the barmaid said to the stamp-collecting customer who offered to show her his collection:

"Philately will get you everywhere!"

Hi Linda
No crow stories today but a friend from Inuvik said that the ravens up there (Arctic with looong, COLD winters) learned to perch on the streetlights so that their feet covered the light sensors. The automatic lights would then turn on and keep their feet warm.
Welcome to the board
PS if you're up in Marpole keep an eye out for the pair of jays that have just moved to the area.
