i found a fallen crow behind my house.. i was following a hunch based on the odd attitudes of my chickens.. they growled while looking towards a certain spot, so after they dashed into the coop for safety, and it wasn't quite dark yet so i wandered a couple yards in the direction of their apprehension and spotted the remains of a crow..

the skull was apart from the body, all cleaned of flesh.. i retrieved it, putting it back with the body remains..

after photographing it, i said a little prayer for it then i gathered up the skull and brought it with me..

Same here - two biologist and one archaeologist have strange ideas about beauty ...

Whoa! Crows always seem like such survivors. I hope it was natural causes too.
