She wasn’t ready for the early morning camaraderie of the woods. There was a rustling in her nest. Effie’s eye popped open and hoped whoever it was would go away. Then, there was the unmistakable caw of an annoying crow. She quickly crawled out and found the large, black bird. He was trying to pry a twig from her nest, possibly to use in his own.
