Best summer of my life, I fostered a Crow found him at about 30 days old, since that is when they are out of the nest, it was decided where he/she was would not live through the night. So I brought him/she home. He/she is a fixture now in the yard, in fact if we don't see him or hear him we worry about out dear friend. Here he is looking for yummy spiders, and I have lots of them .

Dear Bay, Do you want to adopt more? They are a nuisance here and my neighborhood is considered a "sanctuary" so we can't do anything about them. I have up to 60 at a time eating grass seed on my front lawn and pestering my kitties, who hide under the cars! (Sold as is, where is.)

Crows are really really smart, far smarter than chimps, dogs, and some people I know. I think Nature did a show on PBS re crows, maybe look on the website. They actually recognize individual people in a crowd. I have lots here, they had a nest in my trees. They don't bother much, but this is the really deep country, after all, not a city or suburb. Check out that program on the PBS website maybe? Might give you some hints to keep them from pestering you. Don't try to seed the lawn, and give the kitties boxing gloves? My Polly, a 15 pounder, will leap up after them. She always misses, but I'm not sure the crows don't actually enjoy the game. I have a hummingbird that baits and teases Polly as well, when she's sleeping on the chair on the porch. Wildlife interacts a lot more than we think it does, and enjoys play. I think the crows are teasing you, hee hee hee. Ever consider a scarecrow? Or contact the people who produced that program, offer them your yard as a study ground for a fee, then buy more grass seed? 60 is a lot of crows at one time! Good luck, caw caw, hugs, Marji

That is amazing. My cousin used to feed a couple of ducks and they of course made themselves at home on/under their dock, and this year a couple wanted to nest in their boat! Anyways she could hand feed them and they would come when she called them.
