  1. He is a mean looking one.

      He does look a bit angry but in his defense he had just finished preening. Perhaps he doesn’t like the taste of his feathers?

    Those are some nasty looking paws on that creature. Like a Bird of Prey!

    Crows always look a little bedraggled, maybe it’s their way of making people feel sorry for them and give them a handout.

      It’s scary how much you read my mind. I have a little crow I am feeding now called Dustin. He is missing feathers and has a gimpy leg. He is so ugly he’s cute.

        See, bedraggled works and Dustin knows it! What do you give a crow for snacks?

        I’m ashamed to say I went to the pet food store and bought some expensive parrot food made out of corn. I tried to feed them everything in Oakland and they would have none of it. But this stuff? They love. I give them a handful a day in the driveway, but I have no memory and forgot the last 2 days. Yesterday evening Dustin came by and stood on the fence cawing. I gave him some food inside the fence. He swallowed a bunch whole and when I told him to slow down, he flew off, angry. Lesson learned. Don’t reprimand the ugly crow.

    I found this, thought it was interesting, thought you might find it interesting too.

      Very good site. I had no idea about the peanuts. And in the shell. Very odd. I did not know they would cache the food either. I’ve been giving them a fixed amount mainly because the parrot food is so expensive.
