Out of the Blue

I don't know, I expected more effort from the squirrels after I bought the birdfeeder designed to thwart them, as I've seen video of them going to extraordinary lengths to break into feeders... I guess there are enough alternative food sources that it is not worth their trouble. The neat thing is the feeder is also helping keep things fair for the smaller birds, as we have a heavy crow population in this area, and the same mechanism that closes the feeder when squirrels climb on also gets triggered by the weight of more than one crow, so the big guys have to take turns, and cannot dominate the proceedings the way they would with an ordinary feeder.

A particularly vile and worthless bird, IMO.

I guess all opinions aren't created equal.

If you'd like to supplement opinion with actual fact, I can tell you that crows are in fact exceptionally intelligent animals, and a whole lot less vile and worthless than a lot of humans.

I even found a little article on Fox News for you, in case you're more comfortable there Devil
