Causal understanding of water displacement by a crow

They supposedly kept a raven or a crow on board ship and when the sailors thought they might be near land, they would let the bird loose and would assume land was in the direction in which it flew. Is this true? You sent me a link your husband found to a website of sailing trivia.

Crow Quotes

The allusion in this expression is obviously to the ability of crows to fly directly from A to B, without the encumbrances of roads and landscape features that restrict man. Crows are perhaps an odd choice as, unlike many birds that migrate over long distances, their flight isn't especially straight. Crows normally fly in large wheeling arcs, looking for food. Kenrick - The Spaniaad [sic], if on foot, always travels as the crow flies, which the openness and dryness of the country permits; neither rivers nor the steepest mountains stop his course, he swims over the one and scales the other. The term 'the crow road' has long been used in Scotland to denote the most direct route. It has also been used there latterly to indicate death, which is the meaning alluded to in Iain Banks' eponymous novel.

Comrades , the circle narrows, heads grow white, As once more by the camp-fire's flaring light We gather and clasp hands, as we have done These many, many years. So long ago A part we were of all that glorious show,— Stood, side by side, 'neath the red battle-sun,— So long ago we breathed war's thunderous breath, Knew the white fury of that life-in-death, So long ago that troubled joy, it seems The valorous pageant might resolve to splendid dreams. Too deep 't is burned into the brain! As well were lightning-scar by summer rain Washed clean away, when stroke on blinding stroke Hath torn the rock, and riven the blackened oak. The piteous burden of the ensanguined sod!

Featured lyrics. Hot lyrics. When that bird fell from its nest Me and my sister did our best To feed it earth worms everyday After school we watched it fly away I miss my mother, my old room and the sound of the rain As it fell on the rooftops and ran along the drains Sometimes it feels like an ocean that railway line Sometimes it feels like were living in darker times I'm heading back home for a couple of days But I cant imagine all that much has changed See that town moves with the colour of the sky There's a face I recognise, As the crow flies Well someones opened up a cafe on the rivers edge I would go there in the summer, rent some boats out, we said Those kids grew up in the beat of the old bass drum From son to father, from father back to son. That cat she used to run rings, always playing tricks on the dog He'd be sitting in the kitchen, rolling around all covered in mud Now they're buried in the garden in the shadow of the hawthorn tree Farewell travellers may your souls always be free. And we always get together this time of year Always wish I could tell them what they are waiting to hear But who said time moves in straight lines At least I can say I tried, As the crow flies She said you're drinking too much, I said yes I probably am I find it easier to forget what I can't understand. Like how all those snakes made it past the line so fast And how the future turns so quickly into the past. Now the cafe by the rivers all boarded up There's an autumn wind blowing through the old horse chestnut But I saw him in a dream, says he's doing alright I can see him in your eyes, As the crow flies, As the crow flies.

I am the spirit of the morning sea; I am the awakening and the glad surprise; I fill the skies With laughter and with light. Not tears, but jollity At birth of day brim the strong man-child's eyes. My voice thou hearest in the breaker's roar— That sound which never failed since time began, And first around the world the shining tumult ran. I light the sea and wake the sleeping land. My footsteps on the hills make music, and my hand Plays like a harper's on the wind-swept pines. Wide over lake and plain my sunlight shines And every wave and every blade of grass Doth know me as I pass; And me the western sloping mountains know, and me The far-off, golden sea. O man, who watchest by that golden sea!
