American Crow (fledgling)

By: Pat Coate

For the last couple of weeks the neighborhood bird ‘song’ has been dominated by the begging calls of two fledgling crows. As loud as they have been, I must admit it has been fun watching them as they have gained confidence and skill in flying. At first they were rather uncoordinated and a bit ungainly as they awkwardly hopped around the branches of the maple tree out back. It seemed like they really wanted to take flight but couldn’t quite get up the nerve.

The young were fairly approachable, but if an adult was with them it immediately took off if we ventured too close.
