I have been spending more time outside these days. When I am not on campus, my time out of doors is usually spent at a nearby park or generally strolling through my neighborhood. Two of my most resent strolls yielded five crow feathers between them: one on one trip and four (!) on another. Three of the five feathers I found are on the altar pictured below.
In thanks for the five feathers, I offered a handful of wild oats and four hard boiled eggs, with the yolks exposed. Hail black-winged Crow, messenger, trickster, and wisdom keeper!
