Artist's Description

This impressive bird was the first crow I’ve had the opportunity to see very closely. Most of the ones around Sacramento are more standoffish than other common birds and rarely compete with them, regardless of the other bird’s size. But in Big Sur, these guys are obvious;y well-fed and not the slightest bit afraid to be close to humans – with or without cameras. :-)

I wasn’t aware of the dark beauty of their plumage and expressiveness of their eyes. You can really tell when this bird is interested in something, wary, or just plain comfortable. And the beaks sure look a lot more powerful than most local birds, along the lines of something that could crack a walnut easily or move a knuckle’s usual location without much effort.

But in really examining this wonderful bird, I got a cool chance to check out an American expression: crow’s feet. As you can see (especially in the larger views of this shot) that there is a butt-ugly part of this bird. I mean, I have a new respect for crows but they really need to stand in some lotion or hand cream daily. Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! And those nails! It’s not like they are carrying away struggling lambs or anything so what’s up with those? Anyway, if anyone ever says anything about you having ’crow’s feet’, you can laugh loud and long. These puppies are worse than ANYTHING that could EVER be on your face. Trust me. While you’re laughing, look in the mirror and note that the misnomer should really be called ‘laugh lines’. Feel free to point that out the next time someone gets catty…
