A New Found Friend, A Northwestern Crow (Corvis caurinus) This fellow has realized that there are always peanuts in my pocket! He has quickly become my new BFF. Fortunately enough for both of us there is an abundant supply of food available on the surrounding beach and he spends most of the day foraging there.

  1. Have you named your friend yet, Gary? Posted one year ago
    1. Yes, because of his/her fondness for peanuts, the name is “Peanut”. I was hoping that the fondness is for me but that is a dream for sure! Posted one year ago
      1. Hehe, kind of the same question I'd have regarding our cat. Peanuts is a great name! Posted one year ago
  2. Nice - for a little while we had a 'pet' California jay... she'd some when called and would come right to me to get a peanut. I got quite the google eyed stare one morning when I opened the back door and she came flying down to my outstretched hand just as someone was walking by on the sidewalk. I haven't managed to entice any others into becoming quite that friendly since then. Posted one year ago
    1. Alas, my friend, Peanut, has not been seen or visited since mid or late July. Of course all the rest of the crows have been absent as well. Recently the odd crow has been briefly seen on our deck railing. While they have been scarce the numbers of noisy ravens have increased. I have to guess it is a normal cycle and hope that when the crows return that my “friend” remembers me. Posted one year ago

The northwestern crow is an all-black passerine bird of the crow genus native to the northwest of North America. It is very similar to the more western forms of the widespread American crow , but it averages slightly smaller with proportionately smaller feet and a slightly more slender bill. This taxon is reliably identified by range only.
