This painting is dominated by the large image of the crow shown, in profile, in the foreground. Two smaller birds appear behind it, against a deep, red background. The background, as a whole, is divided almost equally between a pale-coloured left-hand side and a dark red right-hand side. This adds a sense of depth and distance.

The image, particularly the background, appears to have a deliberately distressed, slightly scratchy quality, while down the middle of the painting a vertical bar appears faintly amidst the image. Branches, leaves and the suggestion of a nest are faintly shown within the etchings.

Jennifer Dack studied at Edinburgh College of Art and currently resides with her family in Wiltshire, England.
