Old Man Crow and I made a crow feather giveaway early this morning to celebrate the Winter Solstice
we tie a crow feather to this branch in thanks to the spirits of place every year
it’s a magic spot
I love the colours and shadows in the sandstone
here’s the new feather in his hat and the old one ready to go

    Love all the pics Mo…but I am especially drawn to the 3rd one. Actually looks like someone is always watching over this special spot.

    What a wonderful thing to do. The photographs are beautiful, love the swirls in the sandstone.

    well your winter solstice looks a lot like our summer solstice should have! Oh I wish we had more sun over here; I’ve been scrolling through your blog: nature is amazing down under….and inspiring no doubt. are there many crows where you live? your drawings of the crows are beautiful.

    • Mo Crow says:

      The crows here in Australia are true Ravens (Corvus coronoides), they are large elegant birds app 53 cm long with a wingspan of 1 metre & are very happy living here in the inner city of Sydney. We see them every day flying overhead, calling from the rooftops, at the moment they are busy building nests and enjoying their totally “other” parallel lives to ours. I love this quote from Boria Sax’s book Crow- “Crows are among the most ubiquitous of birds, yet, without being in the least exotic, they manage to remain mysterious.”
      This series of drawings is for our next book, “The illustrated Lyrics of Old Man Crow”
