Crow and Raven

Marya was wondering some years ago how to tell the difference between a crow and a raven when they aren't side by side, where one is obviously bigger than the other.

During the night I woke up and put the radio on and heard someone talking about using progressive (?) meditations to deal with health conditions.
Or that's what I think I heard.
While searching the CBC website to find it, this came across my path:

Out here everyone talks to everyone, strangers or no.


  1. Those crows are so clever, they fascinate me endlessly, learning from the seagulls and becoming shorebirds out here in the Wild East.
    The poem is lovely and evocative of the era.


  2. That's the way it is in these small towns. Everyone knows everyone. It's like one big family.

    1. And even when you've never seen someone before, you talk to them.

  3. I'm a great admirer of crows. No ravens here. I love to shout good morning as they all go off to work and good evening when they all come back.

    1. I love that picture!
      We didn't have ravens here in the 1970s when I was a teenager; they've come down from the north, along with the moose.
