Baby Crow Nestlings

These babies came to us after the tree containing their nest was cut down.¬†They’re eating voraciously and growing bigger every day. Like most babies, its nap time once their tummies are full They look very prehistoric right now, with their short feathers and pterodactyl mouths. Crows can be a challenge to raise because they’re so smart and social. They have a strong tendency to imprint on caregivers, so we’re limiting our contact with them as much as possible and playing recordings of crow calls so they know what they should listen for when they look for mates. Thank you to MRC volunteer Kathy Neugebauer for the pictures!
