Sir Corvus Crow and the Snow Storm

Image
Sir Corvus Crow
 Big headed silly crow carved from American Chestnut, full size and not too detailed.
 Draped in a custom made wool coat and sporting a wool top hat.  The Jungle Crow (Corvusmacrorhynchos) has an over-sized beak (nose) suitable for this project.




The March 6 Winter Storm left behind some neat sights as
 the early morning light started filtering thorough the dense cloud cover.
At 6 AM (below) 9 inches of heavy snow had fallen.



By 8AM we had lost power and the snow weight is evident by the look of the bird wind direction indicator on top of the pergola. The metal wings are folded down.
