Hi brother..thanks for liking the pic of me and my crow. raising those 2 birds was one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had.They are so smart and so family oriented.When they were big enough I set them free.They stayed with us and I interacted with them every day for 10 years.They would come and sit on the window sill when I would be playing my electric guitar and learned to mimic some of the sounds.They would wait for my youngest son to get off the bus from school and ride home on his shoulder.I could go on and on about those birds.
