This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.

The Squirrel and the Crow........

Today I put out a lot of bread, also some scrambled eggs and sausage. I had hoped to attract the Starlings or Crows. I have one Crow who visits but seldom comes down. He will leave if he sees the slightest movement so its hard to get a picture.
Well today I saw two Crows.

They wont let me get a picture yet, this one is through a closed window.........what happened was this. There was a squirrel who had managed to drag a very large piece of bread up into that tree. He was resting from the ordeal. He had 3 other squirrels sitting hoping he would drop it. The Crow decided he would make sure he did drop it. He flew onto a closer branch but the squirrel moved lower. SO did the Crow. Then the Crow left.

He came back with a friend. They sat and stared at the squirrel as if planning things out. One sat on the wire and one went in the tree. The other squirrels were long gone and I wondered if a hungry Crow would take on a Squirrel. I was sort of upset that they could not see all the bread and sausage and stuff at the feeders. I knew they would not come down though. The one Crow does now and then but by the time I realise he is there he is gone.

As it happened someone else scared off the Crows so the Squirrel got to finish his lunch in peace.

Crows are very wary of humans and so are pretty skittish. It has taken me the five years i have lived here in this house to get where i am with the crows i have...and still they are wary of me. haha
Keep trying.

That's so nice that you put food out for them. I even like how they sound.
Blessing,
