August 23, 2012: Three juvenile Crows from Lindsay Wildlife Hospital passed their exit exams and were released on August 23. Because they are juveniles, it is important that they be released near an established group of Crows, where they will be accepted and taught how to survive. Nine more juveniles remain in the hospital, but they are not quite ready.
Cornell Lab of Ornithology:
American Crows are familiar over much of the continent: large, intelligent, all-black birds with hoarse, cawing voices. They are common sights in treetops, fields, and roadsides, and in habitats ranging from open woods and empty beaches to town centers. They usually feed on the ground and eat almost anything -- typically earthworms, insects and other small animals, seeds, and fruit but also garbage, carrion, and chicks they rob from nests. Their flight style is unique, a patient, methodical flapping that is rarely broken up with glides.
