The Here And Now
Adventures in Bird Watching
 Late yesterday afternoon we spied what the Wildlife Rescue Center described to me as a fledgling crow hanging out on the ground in our back yard. Earlier that day the murder of crows that hang out in our area were yelling "bloody murder" so we knew something was up.  This is perfectly normal stage of development and the family hangs out nearby and will supposedly bring it food. If it survives it will soon fly away. It has shade under a tree and we put out a bowl of water. It lacks tail feathers though - [personal profile] xlorp said it looks like a "seagull's butt".  We do have feral cats in the area but luckily it is behind our tall fences so less risk of coyotes.  

The noise started very early again and Shiro is beyond himself with excitement running from window to window. I am heading out to see if the bird make it through the night.

edited: he made it through the night and is still walking along the length of our 7 foot tall fence. There is nothing he can use to climb up higher and we cannot get close to put up a  ladder. So I refilled the water and we will keep watching. IMG_20160601_160738165_HDR crow5 [A Dreamwidth post with comment count unavailable comments | Post or read on Dreamwidth| How to use OpenID]
