Since we moved here five years ago, my wife has diligently kept the local crows fed, making sure to put the food out under the cherry tree when they were around to see it.

This year, a pair have nested in the big tree overlooking our yard with line of sight to the ground beneath the cherry tree.

It's good to build community.



@djsundog Just be careful out there when they've got young. Getting divebombed by crows is a great band name but not a great Circumstance.

@dlek @djsundog Huh...look at that. The's suddenly gone!

Thankfully, they have excellent memories, and can make associations. I suspect the food givers will be OK.

@vertigo @djsundog that's true--and if they actually demonstrate trust towards the people feeding them, that would be super fascinating.
