Great thread S&F I posted a reply in another thread a while back of my
wonderful experiences with a crow I would love to share it again because this subject tugs
at my heart.
ATS thread Crow snow boarding
Crows are amazing I love birds and have fed them for years. I had a very special crow that had to be the matriarch or a very old male VERY VERY LARGE
I named this crow White Wing because every other feather in one of her wings was white only in one wing though the other wing was normal.
This bird was amazing and I felt deep love for her ( and her large family) we fed them all our leftovers in a spot in our back yard and she would sit
on my top deck and caw for me to feed her scraps and bread almost every day for years.She brought me such pleasure watching her eat through my sliders
from the dining room.
She would leave me pine cones and sticks on our table constantly sometimes she would leave a large fluffly plume from the tall grass that grew by the
Even if I didn't see her when I went to get these little presents she left I would make a big deal about it thanking her for it.
One day coming home form work I bought a couple corn muffins I didn't finsh one so I left it on the table for her
I sat and sipped my tea and there she was ..she hopped on the table ate some of her muffin I talked with her a bit
then she flew off with the rest of the muffin.
I didn't see her for about 2 days and actually I remember saying to my husband we didn't really see any birds in that 2 days very strange.
I came home from work with my husband on the 3rd day that I didn't see her and went to the deck to scatter the night befores bread for her and right
in the middle of the table was a old beaten up key chain with a pretty scratched silver beaded tag on it we were so amazed I really loved this bird
she had such a personality.
We never saw her again after that day I WAS SO HEART BROKEN.......(eyes tearing up now) I continued to feed all her family. That was back in 92
through 95 or so at least I had a few years with her.
