That makes a good rock song. It has a good rhyme to it and pulls on the bad bird theme of Crows. Ok I digressed from my discussion today.
Its nest-building time for crows. Watch where they go with a stick in beak and you will find their new nest-building exercise underway. They prefer evergreen trees with a dense section of limbs high up but not at the very top. In this bushy area they will carefully arrange sticks for the base and form up the nice cubby hole where the babies can be contained for several weeks. Once they have the base built they will add moss, fur or any other soft material as a lining. Several years ago I saw a bird fussing with an old animal skin and found the nest he was building. Pretty funny when their beaks are full of fluff.
First picture here is from Saturday when I was going to a garage sale. There the pair were in a driveway picking out the best sticks. Got a shot of one up on the wire being sneaky about showing me where they are actually building.
Today I watched a guy on the wire manipulating his stick. He (She) flew in with the stick in beak. Then he moved it to his foot and turned it around to make sure it was suitable for his needs.
Next it was back in the beak for transport. Away he went and I found his tree home.
