Corvid Clarity | The Urban Nature Enthusiast

Answer:  STARK RAVEN MAD

(Pun-derful!  Rings fresh.  I was amused.

No new clue words today.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “scaaub” before.  The answer letter layout was a thrilling thirteen letter jumble.  Marvelously cryptic.  The quotation marks in the final answer slots were a big clue.

Cute cartoon of the irate farmer, in his barnyard, with his victimized chickens, screaming at the pilfering passeriformes.  His hens look plenty peeved too.  Crows and ravens are sneaky smart!  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
