Mates for life

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. IMG_8542As 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.
