Injured crow
« on: August 16, 2012, 07:25:38 pm »
This is weirding me out. When I got home today there was crow sitting in our front garden. I think he might be injured because he isn't flying away even if you approach him.

When I was going to the shop he was still there so I threw some bread out to him. About five minutes ago he started tapping at the front door. I open the door and he just sits there looking at me.

If it is injured I suppose I could get a vet for it, do they collect injured animals? Would they even bother with an old crow?

The fact that it has knocked on the door reminded me of the Poe poem. But it makes him a crappy bird of ill omen when he doesn't run off when I open the door and he sits there looking at me making me feel guilty.

So feed him.  That could be a pretty unique pet.  Just think of the microbes alone!

I'll give him some more bread and if he is still here in the morning I'll get a vet to take a look at him.

It's possible that he's just a mooch.  Does he appear to be in any discomfort?

I mean, I have it on reliable authority that birds in your part of the world shamelessly approach scriveners.  Do you draw for a hobby?

He doesn't seem to be in discomfort but he's not flying off which makes me think his wing is injured plus we were having a really bad storm yesterday. I draw but its probably more to do with the fact that I'm a pushover. He knows he can get food out of me by making me feel sorry for him.

We've taken him in and put him in the garage, Its warm and dry and he seems happy enough perched on the barbecue, we've left him with some food and water. Wet bread and a handful of oats are OK for birds right?

Try to avoid salt, I've heard it's bad for birds.

Crows are smart as FUCK. I hope you keep him.  :)
