If your 11-year-old mocks you by making a cawing voice, upturn his dinner plate and mock his mocking voice.
I love the rainy windy days of fall when thousands of crows populate the near landscape, cawing and scowling.
A crow is cawing in a tree, and looks with beady eyes below.
At intervals they all rise in the air, and wheel about, all cawing at once.
The cawing of rooks is not in itself an agreeable sound: musically considered, it is very much the contrary.
So back they came, cawing at the top of their lungs, for they were very much excited.
The raven was making awkward attempts to fly and cawing "Go to, now!"
But, till that happy time, take my advice, and submit to the cawing.
The doves crooned; the cawing rooks flapped black into the blue above the neighbouring woods; the earth drowsed on.
Don't you know the cawing crow lives five times as long as a man?
