Crows and Pears

Posted in Uncategorized on September 28, 2010 by victoriaisherwood

The crows have noticed the pears are ripe, and are vociferously occupying the upper branches of our pear tree (and the neighbours’), and pecking the fruit. Last year I saw one detach a large pair (ooo er missus), and, holding it by the stalk, fly off with it in its beak. Reminded me of the Monty Python sketch about the swallow and the coconut.
