After uprooting my newly planted herbs and flinging them on the deck, this little demon crow has been burying peanuts in my plant pots. I have put wire cages on the plants so that he can’t get at them and hopefully the plants will root. Or perhaps I’ll end up with a big crop of peanuts…
A photo of my demon crow, about to squawk, “What are you looking at???” He actually squawks loudly any time I venture out onto the deck. Then his mate joins him and they both squawk at me, and emboldened, together hop onto ‘their’ railing preparing to attack!
A sketch of this devil crow.
Raven the colour of an oil slick, down on Tonquin beach near Tofino on Vancouver Island. This was another study of water reflections and ripples that I had wanted to do.
I thought this raven would be fairly easy after drawing several crows. But the raven is a completely different bird, and it took me three hours to get this pencil drawing. Plus I hadn’t sized him properly for the page so I ended up doing a separate drawing of his bottom half on the other side of the sketchbook.
