On Pale Eyed Crows - Poem by Francis Duggan

They are very clever ornithologists say
These birds I see often and hear every day
Yet little about them I can claim to know
The familiar Australian the black pale eyed crow
Like all corvids not born with a memorable song
Yet by their long drawn out cawing one should not get them wrong
They build a nest of sticks high on branch of tree
Lined with feathers and wool from the ground not hard to see
Four to five pale green blotched eggs the female does lay
And out of breeding Season they are often seen in flocks most corvids live this way
In all sorts of environments they are known to thrive
the aussie pale eyed crow as a species will survive
As long as there is food on the ground to be found
The dark pale eyed corvids in large numbers will abound.
