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 pieces of food for present... it was great time After 2 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 theories, that animals and birds can somehow exchange information over long distance. There´s also many similar stories.
Yes, they are smart, very smart and with different personalities.
