Crow birdhouse

Too often crows are seen as pests, something to get rid of, to eliminate. We encourage a different view of these beautiful birds. We encourage a sense of curiosity and respect for them. Fortunately, we are not alone in this view. A wonderful woman posted step-by-step instructions on how to build a birdhouse for crows. Imagine! Instead of shooing them away, putting up scarecrows, shooting at them, screaming at them… why not build them a home and give them some sunflower seeds or a handful of peanuts instead?

If you wish to make yourself a birdhouse for crows, you can find the directions here.

    This is great! I think the Crows are so smart ( although I’m still working on the difference between Crows and Ravens)! I live near a wetlands preserve and there are several crows around. One in particular, we’ve temporarily named “Lefty” because he has a left wing that is partially injured. We think a cat may have gotten to him when he was younger. Anyway, he can’t sail or float down, he always has to flap. He has come to know us and will wait for us to bring out a daily dose of peanuts. We worry about him because we know other animals might see him as weak (we’ve often noticed Hawks eyeing him when he’s in the yard). So we’re looking for a “house” for him to stay nearby. This will be great. Thanks!

Please let us know how Lefty fares! As far as how to tell the difference between a crow and a raven—you’ll know when you see one, but we have a post about this if you are interested.
