european jackdaw

March 17, 2014 - Western Jackdaw, Eurasian Jackdaw or European Jackdaw (Corvus monedula)

Often referred to only as Jackdaws, these birds live in Europe, western Asia and North Africa. A member of the corvid family, they sometimes hoard shiny objects in their nests. 

As a graphic designer, these birds always make me think of the pangram (a sentence that uses every letter) “Jackdaws love my big sphinx of quartz.”

Tentatively back. Have some birds. Also available as a print and pattern for stuff.

Also… a look into my brain– because of madamjuggernaut, whenever I look up cockatiels, no matter HOW many times I do this and then correct myself, I always just end up putting ‘icarus’ into Google and pressing enter before I realise what I’m doing. It’s been a while, and yet still. Still.

They’re all called that, right? Right.
