  1. Maybe there is a container with water and it can’t reach the water and it has read the story of the crow in Aesop’s fables.
    Good day, Tish

  2. We’ve just rescued a young rook caught in a wire fence. Vicious bird, it kept trying to stab us with its beak, and its claws clamp on very tightly. It kept hissing with an open mouth, and the tongue was fascinating, as it had two very sharp v shaped hooks, facing up, but, also backwards, about half way back. I assume it assists holding onto and swallowing food. Wish I’d had a spare hand to take a photo.
