My Crow Obsession

Yesterday I mentioned my white spotted crow obsession. It’s been a couple of days since I’ve seen him, but this morning he was on the driveway again.

Today I managed to get a pic of Spot. It’s not a very good one, but at least you can see he’s not a figment of my imagination. There’s more white than I thought, though. It looks like the wing tips and the top of his tail are white.

This crow obsession took me a little by surprise. I’m not sure why I’ve become so attached to this crow, but I have. He seems to be recovering from whatever was wrong with him before, but I’m leaning toward the idea that he is a fledgling and just didn’t know how to maneuver all that well yet. Today he still looked like there was a problem with his leg, but he managed to fly from limb to limb just fine.

This crow obsession took me a little by surprise. I'm not sure why I've become so attached to this crow, but I have.

It’s not legal to trap crows to keep as a pet, but if that weren’t the case I would try it just to give him a place to live if he’s going to be unable to fend for himself with a hurt leg. I’d like to make sure he survives. So instead, I’m just dropping food out on the driveway for him. Maybe one day he’ll get to know me well enough and want to stick around.

Updates

7-25-20 I saw Spot yesterday, and he was flying with a friend. He looked good and capable. I think he was just a fledgling getting off to a rough start. Hopefully, he’ll stick around this valley and I’ll get to see him often, but he isn’t interested in getting close enough for me to entice him with treats at this point. Maybe one day.

    1. Ah, I bet that’s what it was. I’m inclined to think now he was just a fledgling when I first saw him. The last couple of times I saw him, he flew and negotiated the trees like a pro, and was hanging out with the rest of the crow crowd.

  1. Love crows – they know how to play, recognize people, and avoid cats. This crow looks like crows (or maybe ravens) I saw in Alaska. Handsome feller. Good to keep feeding on driveway until he ‘situates’ himself. Cheers for wild things.

    1. Thanks, Nancy. I hope he’s not going to be picked at or outcast because of his feathers, though. So far, he hasn’t joined in with his clan (murder). What a strange name for a group of crows.

  2. Madison, I’m thinking there may be a painting of ‘Spot’ before long. 😉 Looking forward to it!
