If you would like to contribute to my GoFundMe I would greatly appreciate it.

    So nice to see Bey looking healthy! Sorry to anthropomorphize, but it looks like either Bey is doing her best to pretend the crows aren’t there (after all, an eagle has some pride!) or Bey is proudly protecting the crows.
