Photographer's Note

An informative sign of the Oosterschelde national park. It is managed by the Natuurmonumenten and it's the largest national park in the Netherlands. Corvus monedula is a common crow family bird, the local subspecies is C.m.spermologus of western and central Europe. Cultural depictions : the princess Arne was bribed with gold by king Minos of Crete, and was punished for her greed by being transformed into an equally avaricious jackdaw, who still seeks shiny things. Czech superstition formerly held that if jackdaws are seen quarrelling, war will follow. The jackdaw was considered sacred in Welsh folklore as it nested in church steeples.
