Daily Prompt: The Crow


Black crow cackles on his branch.

Watching; waiting there,

For an opportunity.

Crows are amazing birds, very intelligent opportunists, omnivores, they are known to eat anything.  They can use tools to get food and under lab conditions have been known to solve quite complex puzzles.  Farmers are wary of them however as they have been known to peck out the eyes of newborn lambs and other young.
