Wild of the Week: Crows & Bears

SHARE Wild of the Week: Crows & Bears

The day after the owners locked out the players, crows congregated in a tree just a block or so from where the Chicago Bears train in Bourbonnais.

I wanted to impose some sort of meaning on it, but really can’t, so it is just a Wild of the Week.

There’s a bit of the lull on Sundays on the outdoors page of the Sun-Times in the weeks between the end of Buck of the Week: Unplugged, the weekly celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, and the beginning of Morel of the Week or Mushroom of the Week.

I fill those Sundays with WOTW photos. And some good ones have started to pop in.

However, I suspect MOTW is not far away.

Very soon I expect somebody to send some shots of morels from a trip to southern Illinois.

E-mail nominations for any of those weekly photo celebrations to straycasts@sbcglobal.net.
