marks the spot

Heard before seen. The crow found itself a fairly pristine perch atop the finial of The Immaculate Heart of Mary's steeple. This crow's mate, stationed on the rim of a large black satellite dish across E. 4th, seemed to watch in awe. Why it didn't join the other up there on the cross I couldn't say. Perhaps it was crow politics, or maybe the dish crow was too maculate for the position, although beyond a doubt is was not as spotty as a starling.

I was glad to learn that crows are gaining numbers these days, having recovered from the West Nile Virus. A few years ago I was wondering why I never saw any here.
