I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging


A raven in Half Moon Bay.

I'd never seen a raven in the wild before, and this one was lording it over some crows and blackbirds in a picnic area before flying up in this tree, and I was surprised once again by how huge they are.

I wouldn't say his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming, but if he or one of his friends should happen to take residence on a pallid bust of Pallas just above your chamber door, you too might well be driven to write mad gothic poetry about the situation.

Shiny, brilliant creature, that raven. And the Robert Hass poem about birds and absence was beautiful, too.
