The Crows visited this morning. Only two of them, hopping along the railing on top of the deck. Apprehensive, one flew off to a nearby tree while his partner pecked at peanuts in the feeding tray on the rail. It snowed most of yesterday and this morning, covering the ground, stacked in piles on the tree branches. They must be hungry and the peanuts were easy pickings.
Audubon website. You'll be amazed to find out how intelligent they really are.
Incredible diversity today. Some of them may stay all year, but others are just moving through to find the right place to set up housekeeping for the Spring. Nevertheless, I've brought out several servings of raw peanuts and sunflower seeds, even brought out a suet cake to keep them warm and cozy.
