crows nest building
Two carrion crows flew down onto the dirt track outside our house. One started collecting materials in its beak while the other strutted about nearby.
When the crow had collected enough materials both flew off across the road to a large tree, in the next street.
A pair of crows nested there last year and these are probably the same birds. They came to the bird bath quite frequently last year, often bringing lumps of dried bread which they deposited in the bird bath to soften them. I will keep an eye on them this year.
