Repeated encounters with the same Crow...

Postby TaintedxxBright » 07 Mar 2014, 15:21

While at sitting outside work a few months ago I heard a muffled squawk, sounding more like a kazoo than a crow...but there he was. sitting atop the light post beside our outdoor table. Either he was born with something wrong with his vocal cords or something happened to him to cause the damage. I wondered about him. Anyways, fast forward to last week. I was taking my dog outside my building and who flies over me squawking like a kazoo? The same crow....!!!! LOL He is henceforth named Kazoo. I hope to see him again. =)

I do work a block away from my home so yes, I assumed he is living in the same neighbourhood as me!! <3

Looks like you have a friend.
Here's a great youtube video on crow intelligence.

The corvids (crows, ravens, blue jays) are admirable birds - intelligent, resourceful, wary and beautiful. The crows visit the trees around my home in the morning, scouting the land and calling to each other. How wonderful to have one accompany you!

We have a crazy crow we call Kevin, often seen on a TV arial, he hops backwards till he falls off the end then grabs with his beak and swings for a moment before flying off :-)

I do love a corvid (hence the bran part of my name). Wherever I am there seems to be an abundance of them. Always makes me smile.
If at first you don't succeed, I hope it wasn't brain surgery.

I have a few birds in the garden who have become semi-pets over the years. Of the corvids I have a Crow with a broken beak (Captain) who waits on the kitchen windowsill for my fruit scraps - apple cores keep him amused for hours and he will actually come to my hand for a mushy banana. I also have a pair of magpies (Mick and Jenny after the Magpie TV show presenters) who live in my cherry tree most of the time and they will both come to my hand with a bit of coaxing, especially if I have bacon rinds. We also have Jackdaws and Ravens but so far they have resisted my attempts at befriending. I think corvids are my favourite birds, they are so intelligent and fearless.
