I am sure many of you think I am nuts for liking crows. But...
Growing up, crows were everywhere. One day, after a storm, my Mom found a baby crow on the ground. She took it home and raised it to adult.
This crow became part of our family. It would knock on my bedroom window with it's beak so I would go out and feed it.
It would also steal our marbles, but it would always give us something back in return... even if it was an old stick, it would still give something back.
Our pet crow ended up getting hit by lightning during a storm, but now... when I see a crow, it brings me good thoughts of my deceased Mother.
So, I feed the crows during the winter months. I had won some cat food in a giveaway I entered. No one wanted it because they didn't want to changes the food their cat was on. I thought about taking it to the local animal shelter... Then I thought it would make a GREAT treat for the crows.
Yesterday, I walked by my kitchen window and seen this huge thing out in our yard. I knew it was way to big to be a crow.
I had to creep really close and slow so I didn't scare it. Look at this, a huge hawk. Poor thing was hungry.
Good thing I don't have a little dog because it might have been out in the back yard playing in the snow.
My Daughter has a cute little dog that would have been lunch for this huge bird.
