My crow friend has been absent for a year in November and have a new one watching me closely. He responds to a spoon to sauce pan bottom but no perching nearby. My concern is if he gets close and I die he will approach an idiot with a shotgun. Love to watch their antics but not at the cost of a life. I pause at the stack of deer corn bags at Tractor Supply but haven't made the jump. Golden years is BS.

We have a pair of sandhill cranes that summer at our place. We feed them some corn,they really put on a show for us. We call them fred and Wilma because they sound prehistoric.

They kind of look prehistoric too. smile We love watching Sandhill cranes. Been up to Creamer's Field in Fairbanks a couple of times where there are a ton of sandhills certain times of the year. Also seen them in Homer. Back in the day, they used to darken the sky in Nebraska along the Platte River (in the sandhills where they get their name from.)

Ravens are even smarter than crows, I think.

My brother was visiting family in Aurora and drove over the Platte River and sent me a picture, basically waterless. Couldn’t see any in the picture……joe

Yes, about ravens being smart. My son and I were driving on a logging road in Haida Gwaii, the ravens flew alongside our windows. Apparently a lot of the logging truck drivers will feed them as they are driving.

I have 5 apple trees about 100 yds from the house. Just before the apples get ripe the crows that live next door start on them. I can walk from the house or the shop halfway to the trees before they fly away. But if I open the shop door with a shotgun in my hand they are off as soon as I take the first step out.
