Edgar Allen Crow




We have lots of crows in my neighborhood, and there are several nests in trees in the neighbors yards. Little Edgar here must have fallen out and ended up in our back yard. With all the dogs and cats here it's amazing that he is unharmed. He's got feathers but can't fly yet, and the nests are too high up to put him back, so I brought him inside. He just sat in my hand and let me feed him some baby bird food that we had left over from when the budgies had babies. I was a wildlife rescue volunteer years ago so I've fed more than a few baby birds. The parents were frantically calling and flying around, but now that it's dark they've quieted down. It's heartbreaking to hear them, but I will be taking Edgar to the Sonoma County Bird Rescue Center first thing in the morning, where he will get taken care of and released.

Oh, poor Little Edger and his parents! But I'm so glad he's in good hand. It's so cool you knew how to feed a baby bird!

What a beautiful bird! There seems to be a lot of this going around these days. A couple of months ago I found a baby dove being attacked. He lost an eye, but pulled through like a champ! He was unreleasable, so he is still here and doing wonderful! I admire you for your kindness. =)

Who knew a baby crow would be so cute? He really does look like he's thinking something...
