I’m walking up the driveway one day when suddenly I hear a sound… a broken caw I look up and Buck is sitting in a tree above my head He stared at me and puffed his feathers then hopped down in front of me and cawed again I was so damn thrilled and I told him how proud I was of him He ruffled his feathers and then soared off into his old tree That summer? I heard two broken caws One from Buck… and one from his chick Cut to ten years later? We have a family of crows who all have a very distinct caw and they come here and spend every spring summer and fall on our property Buck still greets me every spring that last reply made me wanna cry that’s so beautiful Don’t forget the Russian Crow SLEDDING DOWN A ROOF not once but twice this one morning i kept hearing really loud caws i remember it was like 5am LIKE REALLY LOUD AND ANNOYING AND AGGRESSIVE so loud that i could hear it through a closed window and i eventually went outside to check it out there was a crow on my front lawn it had an injury on its head and couldn’t fly and there were two other crows circling right above it and they were cawing like mad i tried to get close and take a better look and one of them dived super low and tried to attack me so i went back in the house and chopped some sliced raw meat and tossed it at him from a distance a few more times later very soon after they could tell i was trying to help and did not attack me i was “allowed” to walk up close and pick him up he couldn’t drink water properly so i had to dip my finger in a bowl and stick it in his mouth i did this few times a day and it went on for about a week before he disappeared i thought he recovered and left but he came back the next day and lands on me and i see him around the block quite often and he would come sit on my shoulder for a few minutes and then fly away again i feel like i’ve adopted a son Best birbs !! your son is Beautiful and Strong every time I see this post it has different crow stories and every time I reblog it again because all crow stories are good stories Like I wouldn’t want to be on bad terms with a crow but they are a really smart animal they aren’t scary You just want to be nice to them because they will know and they will remember and they will pay you back if you treat them a certain way As a side note I volunteered at a rehab Hope for Wildlife where they were rehabbing a crow with a broken wing–who was named Russell Crow He kept pulling his bandage off so a sleeve was cut off some old clothing and put on him like a little sweater !!!! I don’t think I’ll ever not reblog this This posts makes me cry and smile at the same time He’s so handsome!! I would trust a crow with my life Meme
