This feathered ambassador arrived in the Spring of 2014 from a local rehab facility. Our Fish Crow has severe wing injuries, so he cannot fly.
The Fish Crow has a narrower body, skinnier legs and a different call from the American Crow, which is a little thicker and calls the typical, “CAW CAW.”
- Crows have more than 20 different calls. Most common is a loud, harsh “CAW.” Others calls include a rattling sound, softer caws, coos, and clicks. Each style of call has a different meaning. Listen to sound bites!
- Crows are exceptionally intelligent. They can make and use tools, solve puzzles, and follow other birds to food sources.
- Crows like to play games that you like to play, like hide-and-seek, tag, and tug-of-war.
What to look for:
The Wildlife staff members are still learning the personality of this new animal ambassador. They are currently training the crow for the glove and for classroom visits.
*Glove training is a falconry technique where a raptor is taught to get on a gloved hand and then remain there until given the command to return to his perch or mews.
