Crow Stick Wizard

Last week we talked about sticks and nest-building.  On Friday this week, I spent a day with no office mates.  They were either working offsite or took the day off.  I took advantage of no one being about in the great room upstairs, when I saw crow action outside.

The big open area has two walls of glass windows looking out into the tree tops. There I saw Mr Crow dig in the tree for nest sticks.  He found one and then proceeded to Houdini it out of the maple tree’s maze of branches.   I had grabbed my camera and caught all this on video.   It is a delightful sequence that shows our urban crow family using his brain power to raise his family.

      1. I do think birds are magicians when it comes to their nests, superb craftsmen … crows in particular! I just never seen Houdini used as a verb. It’s perfect! 🙂
