holy crow

I think I got swooped by a crow this morning. Actually, I’m pretty sure I got swooped by a crow this morning – several times.

Well, it never actually made contact, but it kept circling around and cawing loudly and flying close to me.

I have no idea what its problem was, but it seemed to really want me to get out of that area, which, by the way, is pretty much only across the road from my house so, really, I should have been the territorial one. It’s just too bad that I was on my way to work and hence didn’t have time to put that crow back in its place. (Darn crow…)

But maybe that crow was just extra irritable because it was so ridiculously hot today (and I bet those black feathers absorb heat like a … heat sponge…?)
