The jackdaws are socialising in the big old tree, preening and chattering, wiping their sturdy beaks on the knotted branches. A sudden noise and they take to the air, Black brushstrokes daubed across a steely grey sky.

"Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such." Henry Miller

Hi Suz :-)

Jackdaws are a smaller member of the crow family - they have beautiful pale blue eyes.

Funny, I've been reading some stories about crows written by one of my former writing students for his grandson. The picture of your jackdaws socialising has more layers than it might have!
