I'm basically surrounded by corvids who hang out on huge trees 20-50m away. They frequently fly over my house and it just feels like they own the area in terms of birdlife. How do I draw attention to them and start feeding them?
They are clearly thriving so putting out food feels kind of pointless.
I wish I had corvids near me. All we get are grackles, which are cute, but I want to build a relationship with the crows.
Anyone helping out hedgehogs is fucking based in my book.
pretty sure it was looking to prey on it, anon
>repeatedly poke the hedgie's ass to make it cross the road
>fuck off once the hedgie is safe
Man of little faith.
no, it wasn't
Fuck corvids, man. They're the ONLY things that still prey on my hens.
8ft cement walls around the property to keep out land preds, metal fencing all over and below the chicken runs keeps out hawks and rats
But not fucking Corvids, the crows just poke their beak in through the welded metal mesh and kill chicks in one peck or injure my chickens.
No reason either, they're just assholes.
Maybe a second layer of mesh with enough of a gap that their beak can't reach?
So if crows can not only remember faces but also retaliate or reciprocate depending on treatment, do they develop biases for or against people who look somewhat similar? Can crows be racist?
There's a bunch of crows that hang out outside of my gym, and my coach recently started feeding them peanuts and they've gotten huge from all of the protein. He lives just a couple blocks away and they follow him home where he sometimes feeds them meat. He loves it.
Aaark aaaaaaark aaarrrraaaak
These jim crow laws are out of control
It sucks its in shorts format but I've always loved this
Replace "shorts" with "watch" in the url and you can use the normal interface
Alternatively, you can just change /shorts/ to Wauf.
Several years ago I saw a vid (I think it was about 1:30 mins long) on youtube about a crow or probably a raven landing on some persons terrace and that person talk to it, the raven was making gurgling sound from time to time, and I think the man gave it water or food, this was happening in winter (there was now everyehere) in England or Wales and the man was talking in some regional English or Welsh accent (a very pleasant sounding accent), unfortunatrly I haven't saved the vid and now it may be gone, has anyone got this video?
socialism with avian characteristics
Corvids are the shit.
There are a lot of these dudes where I live, recently also more crows
god I wish that were me

Used to feed cats at my work and crows used eat the food and I’d have to walk about a 1/4 mile to the front of the property and a crow used to fly along with me-land a ways ahead then wait for me then fly ahead plus it would wait for me to come out ofbyge building ahd go back with me.
love them, they're either the biggest pricks or the most loyal animal depending on the day
I watched a crow try opening a carton of ice cream that was outside near my job a couple days ago, i wanted to help the guy he almost had it open
Supposedly if you befriend a crow, either a single or group, they will tell their friends and their children, and their children will tell their children's children. If you give them food and are nice to them they may even bring you gifts like shiny objects.
And if you're an asshole to them they'll drop tell all their friends about you and you'll have a murder of crows following you for life, doing dive bombs and dropping rocks on your head.
This got me thinking. How does a community of crows "keep score" of which humans are dicks, which are neutral, nice, or super nice? Do they have some sort of name/word known only to crows for each category of human with only a few set words/categories to put humans in? Or is it more a gradual gradient, or numerical like China's social credit scoring system??
They remember faces, I doubt they use names. When youve been a dick to one he probably just goes:
>hey look at this asshole, get him!
What the fuck?
Why are they feeding chicken to a bird???
To be fair he's not a chicken so it's not cannibalism.
When I was 17 some classmates fed chicken nuggets to some chickens until another classmate yelled at them.
brazilians can eat chimps and be fine
This is so evil but I can't help but laugh at it.
there's a crow that hangs out at the local gas station and whenever I get tendies there I toss him a few pieces. he loves it
I tried giving french fries to the seagulls at local McDonalds, but the crows were guarding the parking lot.
They'd watch and wait for a gull to try and pick up one of my offering. When the gulls would try to take the food the crow's would swoop in, chase them away, and deny all birds the potato treats. The crows were not hungry and refused to eat the fries. Their only desire was to stop other birds getting any fries.
crows like to save food, they don't like to eat when they don't feel safe so they do a lot of caching food and then come back later after they've scoped the area out enough or have some crow bros to watch their back. Normally they'd dig a little hole or cover them in leaves or something but there's not much to work with in a parking lot.
That sounds adorable.
Next time you see someone eating a burger, slap it out of their hand. Humans are mammals and cows are mammals so it's basically cannibalism.
This but unironically.
Gonna grill up two more burgers now.
Gonna go grill up a couple more humans.
Winter is great because crows lose all shyness and literally come to take peanuts out of your hand
That sounds adorable.
I hate crows so much. They seem so stupid and malicious. Sometimes I wish I were not a crow
Are you a crow, anon?
A Brown-headed cowbird type this
Stop being a dead beat and raise your birds
I fucking love crows
you probably will like this one
go to 6:52
That was really sweet, thanks anon
I rather be a cardinal imo
It's pretty rare but I see cardinals in my back yard from time to time. They're really striking animals.
They love our yard, we usually have at least 2 families year round between our front and back yards.
Sounds blessed, anon.
They're rare here, mostly we get sparrows and grackles. I should put up a bird feeder when spring comes around, though we'll have to change the location.
We had it near our window, but the birds are very skittish and easy to scare off.
I have more cardinals than any other bird save for tits in my feeders. Upstate new york. Peckers are less common. Blue Jay's even less.
Aren't blue jays pricks?
and being in new york they must be extra nasty
regular show made me want to fuck them
Margaret'sa duck you fuckin' mongoloid.
One time somebody pointed out how this shithead focuses nearly exclusively on how bad white people are and I've never been able to unsee it. I unsubbed and stopped watching. Good to see he found time to do something other than that with one of his videos.
