“Why are you chasing those two crows away?”
“Button, since yesterday, this pair has been tugging and pulling at all the new bougainvillea shoots that have just sprouted, breaking them and carrying them away! I assume, to pad the nest they must be building somewhere close by!”
“But it’s so cute! Maybe the crow’s lady love is pregnant and, like all living species, he wants to build a cosy place where she can be comfortable and finally deliver! What’s not right about that? Or they could be mending their existing nest prior to the rains which could well be ferocious. Do you know that other living species like us, not you humans, can foresee what nature is about to send our way! Maybe the crows already know that the rains this year will be heavy and they are preparing themselves for the onslaught!”
“I’m not saying it’s not right but the baby shoots must be getting hurt too! And crow beaks are coarse and hard.”
“Don’t bougainvillea have thorns?”
“They do. Do you think he’s making a bed of thorns for his beloved! But crows, especially, are very sharp. It’s not possible that he’s doesn’t know!”
“Is that why he’s breaking off baby shoots where thorns haven’t sprouted yet or are not as hard!”
