Murder at the Pool Party

Crow pool party |

Morgan sighed. This was not the bachelor party he’d had in mind. Or stag party, as some people call them. Why on earth would a crow want to go to a stag party? He had envisioned a more subdued gathering, perhaps a nice meal with a few close friends followed by a few pints at the local – nothing too crazy. Instead he was surrounded by a bunch of whooping, splashing, pool-bombing hooligans. He wasn’t even sure he knew everyone. Who the hell was that guy with the big, shiny wings? Bloody show-off.

Bomb’s away!!!

This is mayhem. Are these guys all with us?!

This party is CRAZY!

Hmm. It’s MY party and they haven’t even noticed I’m not in the pool.

Do I even know that guy? Swooping in here with his wide, shiny wings - who does he think he is?

    • It’s all that bacon fat, Gary! Actually, these guys have been doing a great job of aerating my lawn, digging their beaks down for big juicy worms. One big symbiotic community.

  5. Love love love this! How did you ever get those pics without them flying off? I’m always jealous of great bird pics. Made me laugh — well needed on these early gray days of March….

    • I had a long lens set up just inside our conservatory window. The first few times I tried to take them they flew off as soon as I walked into the room. Slowly, I got as far as turning on the camera. It took me two days to finally get some decent shots!

    • Never mind NYC – Vilnius would do! With a visit to IKEA – oh, the joy. Thank goodness the warm weather is coming and I can get back outside. Then again, I might end up talking to the bloody crows!
