The other day I wrote about the crows driving me crazy with their constant cawing. They woke me up at 5am and at 7pm they were still going strong. I had a strong suspicion that something more than just exercising the vocal chords was going on, so I went out to find the culprit of the constant cawcawfony – and I found the above little critter.
It’s a baby crow that wasn’t having much success learning to fly. Apparently it spent the whole day on the ground. I’m pretty surprised that he survived, because this is a pretty cat heavy neighborhood. But with all the cawing, I can see how a cat would rather run to the other side of the street and eat easy cat food from a bowl.
Anyway, I got some video of the little guy walk-hopping down the street and you can personally experience the insane cawing of mamma crow going bonkers. If you listen closely enough you can probably hear how raspy her cawing gets towards the end. If you want to replicate my past few days, just play the video on repeat for at least 12 hours.
Fortunately for my writing schedule, they’ve calmed down a bit today.
