A friend of mine is a car park attendant, she likes to sprinkle a few peanuts and grain out in front of her kiosk for the local birds.
Little Dunnocks and Robins stop by, a pair of Blackbirds join them too. But my friend’s favourite visitor is a Crow. The Crow doesn’t just visit to snatch a tasty morsel or two, it wants my friend’s attention! It perches in the tree above the kiosk, caws loudly and breaks off twigs and pine cones to drop on the roof till my friend pops her head out to say hello to the friendly Crow!
My friend is singled out too, none of her fellow parking attendants get a greeting from the Crow.
I popped by last week to see my friend and had the honour to meet this handsome bird! This charismatic creature has now not just enchanted my friend, it has charmed me too!
