Ravens, Tom Ford Eyewear And Brand Myth

The raven as the icon of black beauty, primordial intelligence, mystery and the old ones. Is the etymology of corvid derived from the ancient Proto-Indo European seed sound kos, for shout?

The Chimney Cleaners – Jackdaws on the Roof

Both in the air and on the ground there is an irrepressible jauntiness about jackdaw movements. Yet perhaps the most useful distinguishing feature of this intensely sociable bird is its voice. The full range of calls is complex, although the best known is a monosyllabic, almost dog-like yap, of which the first part of the name is descriptive. Jackdaws make another loud, resonant alarm note, an almost...
