We Don't like Crows.....

well, technically they're Australian Ravens...but this one reason why!
Roxy has been barking at the back fence several times a day.
 We thought she was just trying to get Jedda to come to the fence.
Then Bella and I started barking, too!
(Sorry no photo)
SHE came out to investigate and found a crow, technically a raven,
 Pulling the pegs out of Jedda's mum's washing!
 It came back several times over TWO days!

 Only flying off when it saw the camera.
 We think it's trying to Jedda in trouble.
Because we ALL KNOW who gets the blame when clothes are pulled off the line!
It better not try that with OUR washing.


  1. Epic investigation sleuths. Case solved. We would never have thought. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. me thinks mebbe the raven needs some clothes pegs for her home perhaps? hehheheehe

  3. I don't like crows either. It's so unfair when you chase them and they enter the third dimension!
    Toodle pip!

  4. Ive always thought crows where kind of neat, just because they are so intelligent and sort of mysterious. But then we have never lived near any. Have a fabulous weekend

  5. What a nasty Raven! Good trying to get it to go away. Lee and Phod

  6. Maybe it is cahoots with a bower bird and is collecting blue pegs for it. They are cheeky buggers the crows.

  7. I don't like them, they scare me and the awful noise they make..BOL xx00xxx

  8. Whoaaaa......nevermore.

  9. Whoa!! Glad Jedda won't get blamed for taking the pins! That is one big bird!!

  10. Crows are smart. No telling what mischief they'll cause.

  11. Sounds like that raven is a troublemaker!

  12. What a brazen raven :-)
    Glad Jedda won't be in trouble now you have the evidence!

  13. WOW.... you girls are such good furends to Try and PAWTECT Jedda from being Blamed fur unpegging the laundry.

    That BAD Raven should fly away and come back NEVER MORE !!!
    GRRRREAT that SHE got Photographic Proof fur Jedda's Mum to see.
    That Raven made a POE choice when he tried to pick on YOUR FUREND.
    Just Sayin.

  14. Jedda deserves to be blamed for not scaring it away.

  15. Who would have thought that bird would be so cheeky! Hope Jedda doesn't get the blame she is very sweet. Your barking should scare it away and maybe it won't come back now it knows it's been caught on camera :-) - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  16. OMD I've never seen a crow do that...wonder if it wants to use the clothes pegs in a nest? At least now you can make sure Jedda doesn't get the blame Have a great weekend!

  17. Hello ladies. Oooo what a rotten rotten birdie for trying to cause trouble. He must be fascinated with those laundry pins, but really he should find his own. No one wants dirty linens. Very unfashionable. Excellent job alerting the neighborhood about this, darlings.

  18. Hey to my BFFs down under. Oh lawdy mercy we have had a time with crows this spring.
    Never in all the years we have been here have they used our bird bath and played havoc with our
    suet. When they bath they splish splash all the water out of the bird bath. Nearly every morning mom finds the suet cage on the ground. For the longest time she could not figure it out...then she realized the crows were the culprits. then were actually lifting the suet chain off the hook and dropping it to the ground so they could eat from it. They are too big to perch on the suet cage. Dang we had no idea the would take clothes pins off clothes.
    I saw we all eat crow.
    Hugs madi your bFFF

  19. That would be bad if that nasty raven got cute little Jedda in trouble. Crows are known to steal stuff that doesn't belong to them according to our mom.

  20. Now what would a crow want those pins for? Do you think they hang their feathers out to dry? BOL

    We don't like crows either - they tend to be rather loud and noisy.

  21. Darn that bird is as pesky as a squirrel!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  22. What a nasty raven to try to get Jedda in trouble! We hope he doesn't try to steal anything!

    Love ya lots♥

  27. Oh, we have TONS of crows here (okay, they're called Raven's here too) butts they are NASTY SOB's!!! MURDERIN' SOB's!!! I've seen em' kill all kinds of birdies and it really ticks me off!! I bark and scare em' away all days long...GO ROXY GURL!!!
    Also, tonight Ma saw one follow the Mama Hummer back to our yardie, so she let me out to tell that NASTY SOB off!!! And, boy did I!!! No one touches my Hummers!!!
    Whew....keep up the good work gurls! Jedda should throw another toy over the fence to thank you gurls!
