First Baby Crows of 2013

Crow Stalker has heard the first baby crows of the season.  A big surprise for this early in the spring.

The first one is in a nest nestled in the madrona forest along the beach trail.   He was crying his lungs out and I took quite a few pictures of his sturdy home hoping mom or dad would show up with some food.   When I left I found them around the trail curve.  They knew I was there and was awaiting my retreat.  Fed them some peanuts in hopes that will keep their baby full.

Next as I got closer to home I heard another baby.  Yesterday when I left for the grocery store I thought I had heard that distinctive crow baby cry.  It was coming from Marine View Drive and sure enough there in a little tree behind a house on MVD was the little guy.

This small tree holds a baby crow.  Go figure why his parents selected it except it is bushy

Finally, for your listening pleasure here is a short video so you can learn what a baby crow sounds like.  First you will hear a seagull cry but then the rest is his shrill little voice begging.
