Hungry Rook Bird


Here is a photo of a rook bird. The photo was shot from the inside when I saw the rook bird on the garage roof. Rooks always appeared mysterious to me.

I think cats like it that we live in a time of online shopping because that’s why there is never a shortage of cardboard boxes. Continue reading Cardboard Boxes Are Great
