For thirsty marauders


A sight guaranteed to stir my wrathIs that of crows in the small birds’ bath.

Crows don’t come to bathe, as one might think;most seem quite thirsty, and come to drink.

When crows leave, small birds are bereft;they find quickly, there’s no water left.

Small birds are easily intimidated;so it’s best if the crows are separated.

Crows show up any time, beginning at dawn;so I’ll place a larger bath elsewhere on the lawn.

As alternate sites I don’t have a lot;but by next spring, I’ll find a spot.
