I met the black crow featured in these designs three years ago when I was travelling in France. The crow lived in Paris, more specifically in the park by the Eiffel Tower.
I love black crows. They are rare in my country, but for some reason there are lots of them in my hometown.
The family of Corvidae contains the crows, ravens, rooks, jackdaws, jays, magpies, treepies, choughs and nutcrackers. They are incredibly intelligent birds. You can tell just by looking at them.
