As I was going through the accumulated mail this weekend, I found the latest issue of the Chicago Audubon Compass and as I was reading down the list of presenters at the upcoming Birding America XI which will happen on March 19, 2016, I saw that Kevin McGowan from Cornell University is the keynote speaker!! I am so excited! Kevin McGowan studies CROWS, and I found I knew a lot of what he was talking about from his video presentation last year, “To Know The Crow: Insights and Stories From A Quarter-Century Of Crow Study” which is still available for viewing on the Cornell website.
Kevin McGowan was all excited about following the peanut tradition, but I wonder if he knows the power of hot dogs. I bought some new hot dogs yesterday to start off the cold weather season. I may start spoiling my crow friends later this week. In the meantime here are a few crow pix that didn’t make it into previous posts.
I can hardly wait to continue my crow study which always goes better during the winter months when there are fewer distractions…
Nice series on these birds.
Thanks so much! They are very willing subjects. 🙂
You’re welcome. Someone but be feeding them or there used to humans.
They didn’t trust me until they made me an honorary crow which means I don’t dare leave the office without peanuts.
Oh, now I understand the appeal. Thanks and good shooting to you.
I can perceive your delight when I read your notes about your friends the crows. I totally understand that! Good captures there Lisa! Why don’t you write a book about your friendship with the crows and illustrate it with your photos? It would be a cool book “Straight as the crow fly” 🙂
Oh HJ, thanks so much! I have so many books to write but no time which is why I have this blog, just to get me to the page every now and then. And there are already a lot of good books about crows out there. But I’ll take your suggestion to heart. Maybe start with a Crow Song… 🙂
Glad to see that pink pellets span the Atlantic.
