A couple of nights ago Stefano and I watched an excellent nature program titled “Wild Italy,” which at one point focused on the jackdaws that live in and around the lovely town of Pitigliano in southern Tuscany. As the camera zoomed in on a particular pair of jackdaws, the commentator mentioned that these birds mate for life.
Stefano turned to me, squeezed my hand and said (in Italian, of course):
“Hey, my little jackdaw…”
Well, what can I possibly add to that, except…I’m a very lucky jackdaw!
P.S. I photographed this pair of jackdaws when Stefano and I visited Pitigliano a couple of years ago.
