My last two trips around the Duwamish brought me to Harbor Avenue Southwest. Two weeks ago as I walked down the avenue towards Jack Block Park the local crow murder came flying in for a landing.
Those you who follow my crow friends with me know I carry crow food as I walk around. And of course I fed this flock some of the goodies in my bag. They swooped in and enjoyed.
This week, when I started back from the viewing platform at Jack Block Park which is on Harbor Avenue I saw a group of crows behind the fencing. I am almost jealous cause you know I wanted to get closer to the river at T-5.
This is not the first time I have been to this area and I swear they know me. As soon as they saw me they came in droves to follow me around. Could I resist their fondness for me? Instead I talk to them and then throw more peanuts and bread.
Here they are posing for me after that.
The best part was this pair sitting on the light pole. First looking to the left and then to the right. They made a perfect pair of silhouette photos.
This was a sweet interlude during my quest to walk the Duwamish. Crow Stalker finds her friends and crow admirers where ever she goes… even this far from my home crows.
To see all of my Duwamish Adventure I have a directory post that links all of the pieces together. You can find that post here – My Duwamish Adventure Directory

That Crow that was watching you for peanuts — how close were you when you took that picture? I find it interesting — you are on the west coast, I’m on the east coast. Your Crows are slightly different from my Crows. I wonder if your Crows sound like mine? I saw Crows in England, and they were BIG and their call was a BRACK instead of a CAW. Cracked me up, i.e., British Crows have a British Accent! (Joke, Joke… 🙂 )

He was maybe 10 feet away but I used my zoom on him. Seattle crows are mix of American and Northwestern Crows. The NW are smaller and then they have interbreed with the AM to make Seattle Crows. :). Love the British accent crows… made me giggle or cow out loud!
It’s true about the Brit Crows. Made me laugh out loud, as I was standing in Kensington Gardens listening! 😉
