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.
