Perspective (25) – Corvid Perspective

At a friend’s for lunch, and this crow was strutting about the place as if he owned it

  1. Well, his ancestors probably were around the area before humankind.

  2. He’s looking very serious!

      • Always liked the idea of a pet jackdaw

      • No, truly, corvids are highly intelligent, supposedly more so than dogs (well, some dogs at least) and jackdaws and magpies have such admirably glossy plumage.

      • Sue

        Yep, but a pet corvid??

      • I’d love one! Historically people did keep ravens and crows as what we’d call pets or familiars, but if they were free to fly around the house can you imagine the mess and destruction wrought by their curiosity? (My mother had budgies flying free when doors were closed and I’d hate to think of their mess amplified if it was down to a corvid.) Also they shouldn’t be caged, and as most corvids are sociable — ravens tend to be more isolated, with just their mates for company — it seems cruel to keep them from mixing with their kind. Still, they’re territorial in their colonies, so to have one or two prepared to associate with you out in the open might be a good halfway house.

      • Sue

        Nope, not for me!

    Some of them are very brave and friendly, Sue. Nice of him to pose for you!

  4. He looks like he owns that ‘turf’! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. That’s a cool looking crow! Not like the ones we have here in the US. I like his attitude! 🙂

    Lord of the manor, or the field at least. I wouldn’t like to mess with him.

  7. I’m really delighted to have a juvenile Jackdaw “Chak-Chak” in the garden since a few weeks. His/her behaviour is totally different to the other Jackdaws and I have tamed the little bird to react to the name and come to the terrace when it’s hungry. Cheddar and Edam cheese and bread are just as welcome as proper bird food. Chak-chak runs more than it flies and I hope it will do well in the long run. When it’s tired, it sits down to sleep right where it, mostly in the middle of the lawn.

  8. Definitely a Jackdaw. I prefer them to crows as their sound is more pleasant (chak-chak is about right). We have far too many crows here sitting on the barn roofs all day long! Horrid noise!

  9. Love it – that second one is a real strut…

  10. Quoth the corvid … doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it?
