Crow Love Exists

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No, not just for some but for everyone

These lovely lyrics were first sung by Jackie DeShannon in 1965.  It was written by Hal David and music composed by Burt Bacharach.

Would you agree that we need a little love in the world then and today? How we need to put down our technology and hug each other? Crows could show us the way.


I have written about crow love several times over the years. In early spring their attachment to each other becomes obvious.  Here is a little article I wrote about this subject last year –  Crow Love article 2016 It contains information from Kevin J. McGowan of Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.  He has a FAQ on Crows that you can find at this link – Crow FAQs.

To be really inspired by crow love go to the Urban Nature Enthusiast blog written by June Hunter.  She has documented a crow named George and his wife Mabel. George is handicapped by a broken beak. Mabel has stuck by him in thick and thin. To see more on this crow couple go to George & Mabel’s crow love.

Rambling around being observant I see all kinds of things. One of my posts was a crow pair walking along together. I called it Walking my Baby.

Could it be Crow Love?  These two crows above were not noodling but they were so close together that one has to see the love surrounding them.

I leave you with a post from Christmas. It was a good time to bid all Love and Peace.  This was a short article using crow love to demonstrate that “What the world needs now is love.”
