The Clever Crow

When the fog rolls in off the water and the crows roost in the treetops, their cawing voices eerily echo. Though they are not visitors at my feeders, the crows are a constant presence around the farm.

This crow ornament, created from felt, perches on a twig with copper wire legs.

    These birds are delightful. I have made the barn owl and the prarie warbler and am working on the woodpecker. Thank you for your generosity in sharing these patterns. It would be neat if you could publish them in a book someday.

    Thank you for your site. Hopefully I can reproduce some of the bird figures to decorate a 40′ dart board at the Senior’s club here in Keswick. My job is to decorate for a “Spring” theme for an upcoming dinner & dance later in April.

    The comments you have made about the Crows reminds that two years ago a pair brought their offspring around the backyard to eat dry cat food. The young one was almost the size of his parents and yet he stood there waiting for the food to be put into his beak. Every morning they came for the same food. I had no idea they liked cat food over the seed that fell from the feeders.
