I have two friends who are crow aficionados. One is my friend John Brady, a writer whose book on Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner will be published this year. Look for it – it reveals much that’s not well-known about the romance they shared.
I thought that Jack knew everything about crows until I discovered that my friend Marcy actually “talks” to crows – in their language! She’s a long-time avid birder, and has this amazing talent of calling the crows, and then cawing back and forth with them. It’s incredible! Now when I see crows, I see them a little differently. At Quissett Harbor last week, the only sound was of the crows.
