Crow Lovin'

What a weekend of gifts! The snowy owl was pretty awesome, that was such an exotic bird to me when I looked at it in field guides as a kid. And I got to drive underneath one on Saturday evening!

She's selling the image on shirts, bags, mugs and cards and 10% of the sales goes to the Minnesota Companion Rabbit Association.

It was hard to get a great photo, we have our storm windows in and I didn't want to open them since that would scare them off--crows are so cagey. I did get about seven seconds of video:
