A new bird in Mumbai (Day 1)

I met the house crow today. In cricket pitches, while dodging traffic, and at the sides of stinky sidewalks. Smart-looking and familiar except for the grey head, house crows are able to maintain their gloss even while hopping around in the dust. Immediate favorite.

Other birds I have known:

1. Magpies. Along with jackrabbits, the sassy scourges of indoor cats. Loud. An obnoxious squawk. But look at those feathers!

2. Raven. Tired of darkness Raven stole the light: lateral thinker.

3. Robins. Any type. Here’s a magpie robin! Thank you Google 🙂
