That crow is so beautiful. ❤ always liked them

Short story: My dad's first wife, he proposed to her, she would leave her ring on the cabinet. A crow would always drop by and visit, one day he flew inside, grabbed the engagement ring and it was never to be seen again. Crafty little things they are.

Thanks for sharing Dragon hugs

Foraging for fat: Crafty crows use tools to fish for nutritious morsels.
