        Me, too, Pegeen. So glad I finally read it. I’ve always loved crows and we have many in our wooded neighborhood. I WAS surprised to learn they eat live baby birds which I discovered as a crow ate one baby Robin after another from the nest in my forsythia wreath by my front door. I saved one of the babies and returned it to its nest, but the crow just swooped back and got them one by one. I’d excitedly watched all those robins hatch but the crows of course were being crows.

      Lovely. Reminds me of the film My Octopus Teacher. My son and I love to sit on a big flat rock in the Ramble in Central Park and talk to birds. If you are in NYC and love birds, get lost in the Ramble sometime.

      Great conclusion!

      If meeting once a day to share food makes a friend, then these corvids have definitely become mine.

      Stretchy because he loves to sit in the tree near my window and do crow yoga. He'll stretch one wing, then the other, then each leg. He'll pull one wing low, loop his leg over it, then scratch his head. It's insanely adorable. One day I went outside next to him to stretch too. When I spread my arms out, he jumped away, watching as I slowly stretched my legs. Then he went back to stretching his wings :)
