Yes, they are amazing! We had a crow once as a pet :-). My sister picked him up, when he was a baby-crow and had fallen off (or pushed) from the nest.
He couldn´t fly, but we gave him vitamines and good food, so he got stronger and stronger. He lived freely in our house and outside (learned to knock
when he wanted to come back in btw), ate with us on the table corner, brought my Mom little picec of food for presents... it was great time
years he finally learned to fly and got married as we like to say
. A female crow showed up and started to fly over the house. They both made so
strange and interesting sounds. And finally they flew away together.
Another interesting thing is, that we picked him up in the town almost 200 km from the place he grew up. But we had appartement in this town, so once
we were moving to another appartement, all my family were there. It was over a year we´d had this crow, I don´t remember exactly. But when we had
our last things packed into car and we started to drive to another place for good, there were suddenly crows everywhere, very many of them - they flew
circling low over our heads for some time and then took off. It was like they knew we helped one of them and they came to say thank you :-). I´ve
read about theories, that animals and birds can somehow exchange information over long distance. Yes, there is so many we still don´t know about
Thanks for posting this!
