Animals I Previously Identified As
(Continuation of previous post)
Crow: and it turned out the animals I loved most were birds. I originally looked at birds of prey because they especially were my childhood obsession, but while they looked okay (forest hawks, also known as accipiters, especially) their behaviour and sexual dimorphism was a pretty big turn off, and as I never ended up identifying as or even questioning a specific species I decided not to include them. Crows, however, were the opposite. What they lacked in looks they made up for in behaviour. They were omnivores, lived in groups, and had a wide array of vocalizations, amongst other things.
Raven: Crows felt okay, but what bothered me was how social they were, along with their preferred habitat being more human habituated areas, and the fact that they couldn’t open carcasses very well. Ravens were the answer to those problems; they lived in more mountainous areas, travelled in loose groups, and had a small hook at the tip of their beak that helped them break open much thicker skin of animals than crows could. However, they were relatively large, and so I moved back to crows before moving on. For both crows and ravens their glossy black plumage never seemed to fit me, so I debated being piebald or even partially leucistic.
Magpie: With a longer tail that neither crows nor ravens have, magpies were already off to a good start. While they couldn’t eat as much meat as, say, ravens, they nested in enclosed structures and had more white to them. However, I did believe if I was in fact a magpie I would most likely be leucistic, where the black colouration is a more dilute grey.
