"Thank you," said the crow.

We're half way through November! Now's the time to share your words on birds and show your support for public art and the environment. Our new newsletter has excerpts from "Poem for the American Crow" and a link to Canuck and I, Vancouver's most famous crow who stole a knife from a crime scene. Thanks for turning us on to Canuck, Phyllis C Yearick!

Tallkin' Crow on KHOI

Check out Tyler Harms and I talking crows on KHOI Community Radio's local talk, last Friday, November 11. You can hear an archived version via the link below. What a great show, featuring an interview with Dennis Maulsby in which I learned about "pyric herbivory"! KHOI has been a huge supporter of Iowa Bird of Mouth, and we're psyched to support them during their fundraising drive this week!

11/5 We're Crowd-sourcing for the Crow in Osceola!

Join us for a one hour artist talk with the 2016 Iowa Arts Council Fellows. We'll be crowd-sourcing a verse for Iowa Bird of Mouth's "Poem for the American Crow"!
If you combined the talents of the latest batch of Iowa Arts Council Fellows into a single artist, that person could photograph their own spoken-word performance, which was inspired by a drawing they made to illustrate one of their poems. Fortunately, all that creative firepower belongs not to a single artist but five, who will crisscross the state over the next few months.
