Warlock Whisperings - original painting
Corvid: any of the stout-billed passerine birds of the corvidae family. These include crows, ravens, magpies and jays. These birds are often thought of as the smartest birds as they can solve complex problems with brilliant solutions and have an understanding of complicated situations.
Crows in Japan are known to lay nuts on the roads to wait for cars to run over them and open them for them. Ravens have an amazing memory and learn from their mistakes; magpies can recognise themselves in the mirror; jays can remember the position of hundreds of tiny seeds hidden in the woods and crows can recognise the facial features of a human.
When I was a child, our family friends had a magpie family member who mimicked their speech. Some of the family decided to teach her to swear and she soon became well known as the magpie who would sit up in their front fence and screech obscenities at passers by.
These birds have eyes that tell stories – I believe they know more than we think we know about them – do we really know what they whisper amongst each other?
The warlocks of the pumpkin patch have secrets only they can know. If you creep into your garden on a halloween night and listen very carefully, you might hear a little chuckle and a story or too, from the whispering warlocks. Just don’t ask them for any secret spells, they are likely to screech in your direction and deposit a ‘gift’ upon your head!
