Back in better days, I used to drive my wife and sometimes my daughter along in a lake shore park and we would throw peanuts-in-the-shell for the crows. After a while, it seemed like they knew our car and understood our good intentions — but I was never sure if my ego was drowning my common sense. My wife sent me the link to Vicki Croke’s “The Secrets of Gift-Giving Crows” and it warmed my insides. Love crows or hate ’em, it’s a terrific article with audio, video, and links. I think I’ll take time again on the way to or from work to feed the crows, and maybe one or two will remember me.
