Yesterday I was hanging out in my bedroom on my computer when Freddie started making the creepy cool, “kree kree” noise he makes (similar to the cats in this video) when he sees cute little creatures outside that he wants to hunt. He seemed more agitated than usual, and just as I was standing up to check, I heard a familiar, “caw… caw… caw…” nearby and realized I was finally getting a visit from my crows, after not seeing them around for ages!
I know part of the reason they’ve been scarce is that I’ve stopped leaving tons of treats out on a regular basis. We’ve had a number of bear sightings in our neighborhood in recent years, so I’ve been a bit more frugal with the food. While I’ve heard the crows calling here and there, it hasn’t been like when they spoiled me in years past. And since it was still drizzling rain out, I couldn’t head outside to get any shots so I’m not sure if it was Angel (the crow who doesn’t mind me being outside) and his friends, but there were at least five that I saw who found the pieces of raisin toast I’d tossed out the day before and were having a happy feast.
I’m sure it’s helped that in the past few weeks, I’ve occasionally put out a peanut butter & jelly sandwich or two leftover from hubby’s work lunch. I’m guessing by the visit that they’ve noticed I’m trying to
bribe them to be friends again re-establish a connection . And as @free-reign can attest to, with the crows that visit him, peanut butter is a crowd pleaser!
