My Friend, Peanut, Waiting in the Rain. Peanut has returned and with another young crow. It is quite interesting because the youngster it was looking after last year is also around and although there is competition for favours it is not entirely banished. After listening to the three crows for the last four months I am getting better at discerning their “voices”. Canada,Corvus caurinus,Geotagged,Northwestern crow,Summer Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

  1. Awesome! I'm so glad Peanut returned! Posted 9 months ago
    1. Me too. I am impressed with his “behaviour”. It has been entertaining to watch the interaction between “he” and his relatives. Posted 9 months ago

  2. I love crows and ravens. And your story of Peanut reminds me of the books from Bernd Heinrich; one is Mind of The Raven and tells you many fascinating stories on these beautiful and intelligent birds. I highly recommend their reading :-) Posted 9 months ago
    1. Many thanks for the recommendation. I love watching the interaction of the crows between themselves, with their relatives, the ravens, and with any other intruders, the eagles, the merlins or even the squirrels. Posted 9 months 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.
