    Amazing how some animals can adapt in new surroundings.

    thanks paul that brought back memories of the crow we had as a pet when i was a kid , dad took it from a nest when he was scouting a red tail nest he was a falconer any way we raised that crow for a few years it would fetch rolled up tin foil balls for bits of dog food and it made a good watch dog the alarm was quite anoying

    Your right about that Paul! I went swimming with a few friends at the "ice Breaker" (Its a concrete structure infront of the the old trainbridge's pier) and we put our jewelry (watches and necklaces) in a hat and this crow waited till we were way out in the river before it struck....Struck you say?...yes struck...That darn thing took every watch and shiny object in that hat! We were robbed by a crow! We saw it perched a way up high on the bridge too but thought nothing of it.... at first though! Very smart indeed!

    maby im thinkin of a different type of crow but i hate them.....

    we have some big ones that like to kick and pick at the baby quail..... my mom saw that and told me to pluk them out of the neighbors treem and the ones in the backyard....

    those things are so damn noisy......:angry:

    at first i didnt like them so i used a 1377 and pumped it once just to get a pellet up to one of the palms and scare it off...

    after while they dont care and start getting mean to the young uns:sad2:

    thats when the rifle comes out:wink:

    i shoot to protect the summer birds...not to hurt them :smile2::wink::smile2:

    Sea gulls drop oysters and clams on beach side parking lots all the time. I saw one that had to drop the same oyster 3 times before it cracked.

    Crows are not only smart, They are one of the biggest reasons that they are taking led out of our shells. dept. of fish and game will not tell you this, but the crow is one of the main reason that the Condor is on the endangered list. they rob their nest and destroy their eggs and young. and it's not just the condor nest they hit, they will hit any nest they can find in the trees are on the ground. Have you not seen them being chased by little birds in the sky when you are out. they are not just playing chase, they are driving them away from their nest. I will shoot ever one that I get a chance to.

    If you haven't shot crows your missing one of life biggest pleasures. They smarten up late in the season, but early on you can turn that tape on and they will keep diving in even as your dropping their buddies out of the sky and reloading!! If they were worth eating they would be more popular than whitetail!!
