Clever Crow is clever.Posted: May 15, 2014
I stepped out into the parking lot of the #paranormalhotel today, to have a break. I spotted a take-out container (of black Styrofoam) that someone had discarded. Just as I took a step in that direction so I could pick it up and throw it away, a large crow landed next to it.
I’m pretty sure he knew it was a potential food source before he even landed because he wasted no time in figuring out how to get it open.
He picked it up and dropped it several times until it unlatched. Once it was open, he didn’t seem to want to eat from the container, so he picked it up again and dumped its contents onto the ground, then – with a quick, strong, twist of his head – he threw the empty box off to the side.
I believe his reward was a chicken finger and some fries.
I’m sorry the photos below are blurry, but I was just snapping pics from a distance with my cell. Still, it was the highlight of my day and I wanted to share.
I thought Mark Petruska, in particular, might appreciate it 😀
PS: My emergency, way-too-many-hours, stint at the hotel concluded today. I’m sorry I’ve been so absent lately — I’ve just been really, really tired and busy. In other news,
MY SON’S GRADUATION CEREMONY
(for his AA degree AND his high school diploma)
HAPPENS TOMORROW NIGHT!!!
I can’t believe we really did it.
I’ll be around more in coming days, and I’m looking forward to catching up with you all. Now I’m off to bed.
