Ok...so here's the story. I was BBQ'ing a few weeks back and noticed a real small crow standing on the wood chip pile at the base of our monster Douglas Fir tree... he was just chilling for the whole time I was burning inch thick steaks.... When I went up to shoo him off - he didn't budge....i realized it was a baby who fell out of the nest. So....in this kind of scenario...in my family...we defer to my crazy Indian mother. She scooped it up and fed it wet dog food, worms from the garden etc until it was strong enough to fly. Now....it won't go away and be friends with the local crows.... It's dependent on WELFARE dog food and filtered water. **CAUTION** Racist language....my Indian mom named the bird "Spirit" - my brothers call it a "Nigger pigeon". It's A JOKE...for all u race baiters and political correctness freaks - relax. We got lots of black and brown friends....this is Canada.
