making do in the big city
Walking through Shibuya early this morning, I passed this black crow, hard at work ripping apart some restaurant's ill-advised sandwich board adornment. Totally logical, as the straw (a bit of cornucopia?) is, of course, ideal nesting material. Who can blame this bird for grabbing it? I was quite impressed with the way it was pulling and twisting the stuff free with its beak while maintaining its perch and keeping a sharp eye on any human witness who happened past. I didn't stop to observe for long. Them black crows are scary.
