  2. Crows are very intelligent beings that apparently can recognize a human face through generations ( if someone was bad to a crow the next generations of offspring will recognize this human and react to him or her). Have an enjoyable weekend!

    1. Thank you Anne, that is very interesting!😉 The seagulls will often chase crows off the beach and they know that the gulls leave them in peace when Eivor and Pearl are around. Although some give the crows a bad press they seem very wise and have a kind eye. We wish you a wonderful weekend too and a big pat for Biasini from us all ☺💖🐎 xxx
