We only have 4 at the moment and they rule this area,any new crow gets chased away,not by me,by them.
Mine are mom,dad and two kids.
I started many years ago,feeding the Crows table-scraps,I had seven,six of them died from West Nile,one lame one remained.:sad:
Then the cycle started,he found a girlfriend,they had babies etc...
Every spring I am waiting to see the babies come and eat with the parents.
Now they do not fly away when I am outside,I guess they finally figured out I am not an evil human.
It's funny,I've learned their language kind of,I know when they are upset,which usually means there is a Hawk around,or when they are just communicating to each other because I put food out.
There really isn't a bird I don't like,what is there not to like?

Winston,I've seen videos showing how smart these birds are,maybe yours is a new one,love to see it.
Melinda,that's a great story!
