Three Friends, enjoying a relaxing evening playing cards. Of course they should be working, but they understand crows have to eat as well
Dion - He's probably the most cleverest of the trio, but only because they want him to think so. The ringleader at the very least.
Cludo - The least worldly wise, in scarecrow terms, also the youngest of the three. Dion's little brother and all round trouble-maker
FW - Always had an aversion to work. Thought he landed on his feet with this job, leaning on a stick post all day. Live and let live, espeicially where it concerns crows.

In hind-sight it was such a childish practise really, but children seemed to have the best fun, and it was good fun. Read more
