This creature of ill omen was hatched in an auto-correct accident and propagated by dim newscasters.

Corvids https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corvidae
Not as black as they're painted ? [8th of 7, Apr 21 2020]

OK, not quite a body suit, https://www.bbc.com...nd-norfolk-52456180
but he's definitely captured the corvid look. [pertinax, Apr 29 2020]


       If you're an ornithologist, this is probably a good time to apply for a grant to research corvids. It's an ill wind.

       19 ravens in a body suit? this can't be good.   

sninctown, Apr 21 2020

       Something to Crow over, certainly. Soon, everyone will be Raven* about it, even though it's just a trick to Rook the ignorant ...   

       *Yes, used in the idea, but not as a pun.

       Don't forget "Covert 19"   

       Combine the two and you get "Spy vs Spy"

       Apparently one of the symptoms of Corvid infection is a nasty Chough ...   

       Are you pleased with yourself, [pert] ? Do you see what you've done ? Are you proud ?

       This idea was sparked by observations of people on broadcast media saying "corvid" when they meant "covid". That is all. There is no other agenda here.

       You're just winging it. If you're not careful the beak will be after you. But don't worry, I'm not talon anyone.

       So what's all the flap about ? Are you trying to put a feather in your cap ?

       Nuts. There goes my recipe for blackbird pie.

       It's only a Mynah setback ...

       Nevermore will I be drawn into threads like this one. Not a peep. They're beakining to ruin this place. We end up parroting the same lines. I'm not one to finch at a one-liner but owl be egretfil I even made this comment.

       Human worshipers of Corvid 19 in ages to come will dress in black face masks and self - isolate for spiritual reasons.

       Nice link, [pert] - it's awful the way some people go around, dressed all in black, looking menacing and frightening children.   

       And now as well as the police, there's someone dressed as plague doctor, too. Shameful.
