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.

My Crows.................

As you know, I have been encouraging the local Crows to come and feed. They are very reluctant to come in and feed, hang back longer than the other birds do. I was outside taking pictures and got a few shots of them waiting and thinking about coming down to eat. The Starlings kept eating all the bread before they could get down to it.
Here are two of them waiting for breakfast. Snuggled up against the cold.

This one got closer to see what was on the table for breakfast

Finally he came down and grabbed a mouth full, and kept on stuffing it in.

So then with his mouth packed full he goes up onto the garage roof to eat at leasure.

This guy went looking for bits that got dropped by either other Crows or the Starlings who over packed their beaks

The Crows will dig through the snow to find every last morsel. I love this picture of the crow patiently awaiting his chance to get down and eat.

Clean up before Breakfast while the other two snuggle.

So that's a day in the life of my Crows, well a small part of their day anyway.

You'll have these glossy big boys eating from your hand soon! My grandfather once had a pet crow named Rastus ... maybe I already mentioned that. All long before my time, but I think I would have loved to visit my grandfather and the birds and animals he had around. Your crows would take a lot of feeding! Enjoy your day Janice ... sun is coming out here, but still -18C this a.m.
