Crows, Ravens and Scarecrows in ASCII Text Art
This year we have a family of crows as backyard neighbours. They make pretty good neighbours too. I've seen less other birds around, but there are still plenty of them coming to the birdbaths and looking for a spot at the side of the pond to sit and drink the water.
One really nice thing about having the crows around is the lack of squirrels. Too bad the chipmunks don't leave too. (The chipmunks are digging tunnels under the brick path of the garden and causing it to sink in patches). I'm not a big fan of rodents so having less of them around suits me very well.
I've created a few ASCII art crows myself. I like to put them with a scarecrow, to give them some context. I don't think of the crows as something occult, maybe mysterious. Others have created ASCII art with crows looking a little scarier, like the crow and the skull below.
