Easter has arrived with some nice, warm sunshine! Yesterday … Good Friday, when everything was closed here in Saint John, we just drove around a little and enjoyed the Spring. The wind was still a little chilly but still… not a cloud in the sky. Except from this ‘cloud factory’ … there’s vapor emerging from the pulp mill.
Some time ago, I watched a nature program on TV about crows. It was fantastic, the research they’d done on crows — which isn’t the most popular bird, perhaps — I never forget it. I said afterwards that I’ll never look at crows the same way again.
They were pretty amazing, how they could use tools to get to food, and recognize peoples’ faces.
This about tools, I witnessed yesterday in the park. Someone had left a pile of stale, white bread beside the lake.
It was quite amazing to see how it picked up the bread, took it to the water and wetted it before eating it. Who likes stale bread anyway?! 🙂 You can click on each picture for better viewing. They can be pretty cool birds, but they’re mean to eagles and I don’t like that. I often have to hold myself back from applying human emotions on wildlife.
The wigeon has probably heard that white bread isn’t good for you — they didn’t care about it at all!
After my two, previous, lengthy posts … this will be it!
Happy Easter, bloggeroos!
