Black Crow, Crow or Raven? Which is which or one and the same?
Two each different are flirting or jostling for an inflight fight,
Flirting or defending family territory.
One glistening pure black with silver eye, the other pale black
With yellow rimmed eye and hiding white, until in flight,
A flared white tipped tail.
Which of ten boxes, mostly books, still unpacked, is
My trusted “ What Bird is That”?
And still these two play and circle,
Alternating places, playing or serious combat.
Which is which? Someone knows. They’ve gone!
