The crows' dishes

Sunday 11 March 2012

I've been meaning to put up a photo of this for a while now. Here in the closed-off Second Beach swimming pool are the shells of all the mussels that the local crows have eaten over the winter. They grab them out of the sand, fly high up in the air, and drop them onto the concrete, cracking open the shells. Then they swoop down and enjoy some shellfish! Crows are incredible intelligent birds, and I rather like both that there are so many of them around here, and that they are an important symbol of Vancouver.
