In Spring to home owners they can be a pest
When on chimneys they decide to build their stick nest
They do cause a lot of blocked chimneys in May
These medium sized dark corvids with napes of silver gray
Jackdaws in their range are birds quite well known
One can say of them they have ways of their own
Than most other corvids much smaller in size
Once seen and once heard not hard to recognize
Good friends of the farmers some are known to say
They keep harmful insects, slugs and grubs at bay
From where people live they are never far away
In town parks and the countryside they are seen every day
Compared to most corvids in size they are small
And than their bigger cousins have a weaker call.
