Picture of the Day
April 11, 2022
Shot this from the hip in Volunteer Park on the
way back from walk to the bank. Crows are so
casually dominant here that one friend's toddler
would yell, "Caw, caw!" at every bird she saw,
be it pigeon, gull, or something less common.

I grew up associating birds with song, but for her they all
just squawked. The common image of crows is scavenge
mode, perched on dumpsters or pecking open pilfered
potato chip bags, so it was nice to almost accidentally
capture this reminder that they're really quite majestic.
