Spot the Crows | Flash Post 300
Button, spot the crows in the picture above.
That’s easy. There are three crows perched on the rust-coloured section of the wall. But why did you ask me this question when you must have known that it was an easy one?
Because I have an amazing incident to tell you.
Dost and I were on our way to Kolkata some weeks back when his meeting got cancelled at the very last minute.
I remember that day when the two of you came back in a cab since you had asked your driver to return home.
You’re right, Button. Now, while we were waiting for our tickets to be cancelled and kept open for another flight and our luggage to be brought out from the luggage hold of the aircraft, I spotted these three crows perched on this wall enjoying themselves. On second thought, I asked one of the airport helpers how these crows had managed to enter this space because, except for the single door, there were no other entry or exit points in sight.
What did the helper tell you?
I was truly astonished by the answer he gave me! He said that several crows enter this terminal every day ever since it turned hot and humid outside with the onset of summer, stayed indoors till sunset and made their exit later in the evening.
How very clever. Which means that, for these crows, it was a migration of sorts from a hot exterior to a cool interior!
I have told you a story earlier in this blog which shows how clever and enterprising crows are. One crow was squatting with one leg tucked into his belly, fast asleep. By the time we made our exit, one crow had already flown out of this terminal.
