Feathers Fly: Fergal Infuriates Friend

Published 1 year ago 30th June 2021 by Jamie O’Flaherty

A crow that has been returning to a garden in Carrick-on- Suir for food and treats over the past year has soured the relationship he had with the owner.

What started off as an amicable arrangement between the resident and crow has now deteriorated after the owner, who looked forward to seeing the crow every day, had an expensive pair of sunglasses stolen.

Although admitting that he hadn’t actually seen the crow ‘in the act of stealing’ he was adamant that the bird was to blame.

Still seething with anger, the fashion-conscious young man explained that he left the glasses on his garden bench before hanging out some clothes.

He told The Premier how events unfolded. “It happened in an instant. I welcomed ‘Fergal’ to the garden like I did every morning. His treats were left on his bird table, and I hung out the washing.

I recently purchased a very expensive pair of Ray-Ban glasses and I had removed them while I was retrieving the clothes from the washing machine. When I returned the glasses were gone and so was Fergal.”

Although the owner doesn’t expect the glasses to be returned, he admitted to being upset and disturbed by the fact that Fergal hasn’t visited since the incident.

“It’s like he knows that I’m angry with him. I’m guessing the sunlight reflecting off the glass caught his attention.

I’ve read about other birds being attracted to shiny objects. I’m still angry and disappointed but these things happen. I hope he comes back again soon. I’d hate for anything to happen to him.”
