The Jackdaw






Category: BIRDS AND BEASTS.

Source: Welsh Folk-lore

This bird is considered sacred, because it frequents church steeples and
builds its nest there, and it is said to be an innocent bird, though
given to carrying off things and hiding them in out-of-the-way places.
When ignorance of a fault is pleaded, it is a common saying--I have no
more knowledge of the fact than the Devil has of the jackdaw (see
Bye-Gones, Vol. I., 86). The Devil evidently will have nothing to do
with this bird, because it makes its home in the church steeple, and he
hates the church and everything belonging to it.
