Walking with my baby – crow love

Walking with my baby
Walking with my baby

This crow pair that hang out around our house strutted by today.   The male had his head feathers all fluffed up (he is on the left).  We call that the boofu head.   They walked back and forth several times looking for snacks in the grass.

It might only be November but they are refreshing their relationships in preparation for next years mating.  They are insuring that the family territory is held and defended.  There won’t be any interlopers stealing their best nesting spots and good eats.

I was impressed by their fine feather.  The molting season is over and they have nice tidy coats to show off.

That is why I titled this “Walking with my baby”.   Just out for a promenade on the boardwalk.
