The Thieves of Tarts

On the way to one of Baloo's favorite walks is a very young tart cherry orchard. The saplings were planted just last year, so they're still very small and not in full production mode.

Since people weren't in the orchard harvesting the crop, a murder of crows moved in for the kill.

This is just part of one row, but the birds were just as numerous all over the field.

While the harvest may have been too meager for humans to collect, it was a feast for the flock and a treat to watch them fly back and forth as they jockeyed for position.
