Charm is a Way
of getting a ‘Yes’

Without asking
a Clear Question.

  2. Hah! It’s those pesky Robins, bob bob bobbin along. Vicious vacuous balls of fluffy aggression, but they got the marketing sewn up. You ever watched one with a mirror? (Watched a robin look in a mirror, not used a mirror to look at a robin) They’re psychotic.
    Whereas my kind, well we better be good with words, cos most people who look my way just get a certain sense of their own mortality. Ravens are polite. Ravens show respect. Ravens know how to look in a mirror and learn from the darkness reflected.
    Spare a thought for the vultures, without whom we’d be knee deep in dead rabbits. Now there’s a thankless existence. Charm? Charm is for chickadees. Glass peckers.

    • Raven’s also like to drop walnuts in front of my car so that I run over them and crack the shell… very clever, those creatures.

      Or are those crows? Hm…

      Chickadees- are they charming, or are they vain? After all, all day long they sing their own name!

      • Yeah, you know what they’re called in Britain… suits them.

        And Crows – they’re family, so I’m not running them down… let’s just say they’re the side of the family that didn’t go to college, and are more likely to be found in groups. Still, that’s different depending where in the world they come from. They’re all smart enough to crack nuts.
