April 27th International Crow and Raven Day
Edgar Allen Poe would be proud of this day, never more! The Crow and the Raven are a part of the Corvidae species (No, not Covid) along with Magpies and Jays. They are scavengers, like most birds of prey, and carry a bad attitude persona mainly due to Poe and farmers who try to keep any of these birds away from their crops. The Raven is about twice the size of a crow but otherwise they look nearly identical, except for a slight beard. Since both C rows and Ravens are dark they are often included in stories that give them a fear factor above other birds.
How to celebrate – Read Poe’s works. Build a Scarecrow to keep these birds away. Study the Corvidae species.
