Yesterday on our walk along the gopher trails Abbey had a run in with a crow. I heard the bird cawing and looked to see what was going on and saw the crow dive bombing at my poor dog. She must have gotten to close a rare ground nest or a chick in the tall grass.
I've seen a murder of crows attack hawks before but this is the first time I've seen a crow go after a dog.

Skimming through the blogs I re-read your title and thought it said Abbey Attacked By COWs.

Got to thinking, that it's pretty dangerous on the prairie. Then read it again and saw it was same listing of crows.

Been doing that with words a lot lately. Maybe some new glasses?

I knew mockingbirds were famous for being agressive during nesting season, but I didn't know about crows! Glad Abbey's OK!

Looks like a rainy day for you; take care, and watch out for crows, old or otherwise! ;' )

Dang. Mean crow. Perhaps the gophers have taken to hiring security guards.

I saw a murder of crows attack a stray cat in an open field .. darn near killed that cat before it could get to cover .. must have been 10 to 12 of them .. saw it behind my barn a couple of days later and it had all kinds of fur missing from its back and head ..
wasn't moving to good either ..

You know Tony, you should write a book about your adventures with Abbey and critters you meet on your walks. I am sure kids would love to hear of them, especially those with great imaginations. What fun it would be.

Anyway have a great evening old man. Hope tomorrow brings you good weather and good cheer.

Hi Tony!

Sorry to learn that Abbey had to contend with an attacking crow the other day! Hope she wasn't harmed in any way! I guess beating the heat or finding active gopher holes, while out on a jaunt, are the least of her concerns right now! I'm guessing you know of plenty of other safe alternative routes for the two of you to explore.

Presently, your personal WU weather station shows La Prairian temps and dewpoints at more acceptable levels. Can't wait till we, in Mass., break out of this never ending heatwave! Unfortunately, it looks like there'll be a few more serious crash, boom, bangs and downpours before we free ourselves from this lingering oppressive heat and humidity. Hopefully, we catch a break before the end of the week! So tired of listening to the constant hum of our built-in air-conditioner or fans!

Time for some of those calm, dry, comforably cool and collected days ahead!
