My backyard crows managed to raise one fledgling this year. He seems to be a bit behind in maturity from the other crows I see. This is the first time he has come to the deck. I find baby crows so curious and clumsy. They investigate everything…learning how different plants and inanimate objects feel by touching everything with their beaks. It’s a highlight of my summer having them come in and observing up close.

This 2015 baby – yet un-named – picked up a yellow jacket drowned in the water dish. Just look at those long legs!!
