Today I ran into two gimpy crows. Yes cripples with one leg out of commission. It is pretty common for them to hurt themselves and then carry on with normal life.
First I got a really good look at the guy or gal up on 39th that I have seen many times. When I fed the family bread he came down too. He actually had gained more control of it since the last time I saw it. He used the lame foot to balance and put weight on it. This is unlike my Beach Crow I call Ellie that only uses her limb to balance and hops around on one foot.
Second when I almost was home I saw a lone crow on the road shoulder. Of course I had to put some bread out & then he was joined by another disabled crow. This one had very limited use of her limb. She (he) perched with one leg on the wire and did everything one-legged. Here are a few pics of her.
