Esther Woolfson's daughter rescued Chicken, a fledgling rook sixteen
years ago. Amazed by their intelligence and personalities, Woolfson
became fascinated by corvids. Chicken, Spike the magpie, and, most
recently, Ziki the Crow, have formed sibling relationships with
Woolfson's daughters and with each other; cached food in her kitchen
wall and laid eggs in her living room; called to her at dawn, and
perched companionably on her knee of an evening; and taught her more
than she ever expected about birds and about human beings.
Woolfson's account of her experiences is funny, touching and beautifully written, and gives fascinating insights into the closeness human beings can achieve with wild creatures.
