It was 16.1°C with few clouds. The wind was light.

I’ve often felt that the whole of human existence is solely to provide and abundant food source and endless entertainment to the various members of the genus Corvus (crows and ravens). How else can you explain them showing up as tricksters in Native American spirituality, intelligence gatherers for Odin in Norse mythology, and as the three-legged symbol of divine guidance, Yatagarasu, in Japan? They have been proven to have intelligence (to differentiate and remember human faces, use money and sidewalks) and the capacity for amusement. All of which makes us the largest and longest running reality show in human and corvid existence.

Sanna, Vivien and Christine said thanks.
