I have been thinking of names for our pair of lovebird ravens, predictably a famous couple, and Franny & Zooey comes to mind. A fictitious pair of genius siblings who are perfectly worthy of these smart trusting birds, and well, its just that I’m a fan of Salinger. Here’s Zooey, on the wood pile, right next to our tiny house ….
He is preening and watching over his shy lady Franny, who walks on the ground at a greater distance in the Charcoal Forest.
But distance is relative, because I tell you folks, I was 20 feet away at the most, quietly inching forward ever so slowly before Zooey caught on to me, and took flight.
Beautiful birds, I just can’t get over them.
They have so far snubbed my yarn offerings by the way!
