Pronunciation: crow-ha-bit-A-shun

Sentence: It was never my intention to live with the old bird. But she and her friends kept flocking to our house to see the grandkids. I was that buzz-heard throughout the house that sent shivers down my spine. Finally, I decided crowhabitation was the path of least resistance. Sometimes I get a little down in the mouth, and my wife says, "Why so blue, Jay?" but it's better than robbin' the kids of their in-heron-tance.

Etymology: Cohabitation altered to incorporate crow, as in a hovering, pesky bird.

She sounds like a raven lunatic or at the least stork-raven mad. Owl bet you have been cooped up too long in that falcon house! Great word.
