Happy crow

My breakfast yesterday was the last of the Valentine's Day chocolate covered strawberries.
As I walked to the barn, I threw the remaining bit out on top of the snow where the voles who live in the stone wall would find it.
I came home from work to find in the snow an impression of the tips of a crow's wing and a long meandering path that intersected with the strawberry's remains' last resting place.
The little elf cap of green leaves was gone.

It doesn't take the crows long to find free food. I liked the link to pin cushions--very cute.

I relate to your peaceful scenario, June...often leave little fruit treats myself for the chipmunks.

June,
That's a crow for you...don't leave a thing behind! Sounds like some women and chocolate :) well, I should speak for myself, yes?

You threw CHOCOLATE away?

June said...

Fran. No. Certainly not. The only part left for the wildlife was the green leafy part of the strawberry.
What? Do you think I am insane?

A sweet taste of summer for the lucky fellow!

What? You didn't mention chocolate covered strawberries, June. Where have you been hiding them? That crow hit the jackpot!
