Bird question


I can't remember what it is about crows....
we have a lot of them around here, but up until very recently, they've stayed out of the yard. Now, they are in all the trees in the yard, poking around in the garden, and what-not, then, the other day, I had gone for one of my psych therapy sessions, and a crow followed me across the parking lot and perched on the apex of the porch roof of the building I was going into, and was cawing, rather loudly and persistenly. I looked up at it and [sign in to see URL] talked to it (even tho there was a guy out there and he looked at me rather funny). It didn't fly off until after I went inside.
Can someone help me out with what this may mean?

Re: Bird question


Thank you Playful.

I've had a very strong sense of my maternal grandmother lately. She's been on my mind a great deal. She passed away a week before my 13th birthdfay, and was buried on my 13th birthday. That was 35 years ago. I truly believe that she was a Witch, but it was never talked [sign in to see URL] was not even hinted at. She and I had a closeness that was rather [sign in to see URL] sure how to explain it. It was like she knew that I knew, but neither of us said a thing. It was just understood.
So, maybe she's the one watching over [sign in to see URL] me along this path. emoticon

Re: Bird question


I read on the news that they think as many as 50% of the crows died last year from the bird flu. Ok, it might be a non-sequitor, but it is about crows.

Re: Bird question


There are a lot of places that the crows have been growing in numbers. No better than killing machines. It means nature is out of balance.

This is what happened at the old farm.
The neighbor next door kept feed tons of grain to their animals. Grain they did not need. The crows had tons of free food/gain and over the years it came to a point where there were too many crows in the area. I am not kidding when I say there was hundreds within 5 years. They became gangs. They would kill any baby bird, duck, chickmunk and squirrel. Watched them do it. Is not something you want to see.
I watched a healthy system die. The Crows grew such in numbers from that person feeding [sign in to see URL] nature could not handle it. Crows are very agressive and native birds and small animals did not have a chance. Gone were the woodpeckers, gone where the song birds, chickmunks and others.
I talked to Fish and Game about it. They said the more crows in one [sign in to see URL] more out of balance nature is. Because people are allowing them access to food not normal in nature.
They are like Rats in that respect.

Here at this farm.. we will never allow what happen there, to happen here. A Pair of crows lives on the hill top. They have a large [sign in to see URL] is the way it is supposed to be. Their babies move on to find their own range.
 No killing gangs, no whiping out of wildlife by one species. Because of the balance of nature. We have tons of Native song birds, wood peckers, squirrels, chickmunks. It is the way it is supposed to be.

Bergere, welcome back. emoticon

Yes, crows are an attempt to get nature back on balance. They are the cleaners who take up all that unnatural food. Just look how they flock to garbage sites (just like seagulls, too).

I'm glad that on your farm, nature is in balance. I love crows, they have such personality, but they lose it in the big flocks and become ugly. Now, how does that compare to humans, eh?

Anyway, we need to take care of nature now, or nature will take care of us. emoticon

Re: Bird question


Part of the problem here is our landlord is feeding some ducks that like to visit our ponds and one of the creeks. The other tenant puts corn out for the wild turkeys that live on the farm. Crows, therefore, are coming to feed as well. However, the redwing blackbirds keep them well under control, as do the hawks. Our dogs will even chase them out of the yard if too many come this far toward the house.
I don't mind crows, in limited numbers, but yeah, they can get pretty mean in larger numbers. Mob-like [sign in to see URL] the same mentality. A bit scarey.
