 A Crow’s Tale

A few years ago we had a Crow visit our yard, Technically, he was only using our bird baths. At first I thought he was just drinking, not a big deal.

Then I noticed after 2x’s of going out after the Crow had visited that little bones and gross unknowns  were left in the water after he(don’t know for sure)had been visiting……Ewwwwww<shudders> Luckily he didn’t take a lot of scaring to get him to find another watering hole.

Since then things have been peaceful on the bird bath water home front….. Until yesterday. Yesterday I was hearing a Crow here and there, but I never saw him actually in the yard.

That is until today. I happened to look out the window and saw a huge bird on one of my bird baths. He(again unknown) made my Blue Jays and Cardinals look like finches.

I mentally realized I was seeing a Crow. I noticed that he looked like he was not just “drinking. I began having flashbacks. By the time I got my husbands attention he had flown off. Before he could sit back down, the Crow was back.

My husband asked how I knew he had been eating something? I could only answer that I could just tell he was not swallowing water. Then as we watched the Crow started pulling something apart, dunking it in the water, and gulping it down……Ewwww

I cringed at the mental picture. My husband went out and sprayed out all the bird baths. He couldn’t tell what the Crow had been eating, but I could tell by my husband’s body language it was gross.

I’m crossing my fingers he goes away now.🤞🤞

  1. Well, I like the story even if it’s gross. I didn’t know that crows would use birdbaths that way. Sorry you had to find out the way you did. I guess raccoons wash their food as well (not in birdbaths, as far as I know), but it’s veggie stuff.
