The neighbourhood is alive with all kinds of baby bird noises.
Loudest of all, naturally, are the baby crows.
Here is a sample of some of the hilarious baby crow moments I’ve had the joy to observe in the last few days of dog walking. I’m very lucky that Geordie is a patient sort of dog, willing to put up with many unscheduled stops on our expeditions.
We came across this brand new addition to our block this morning. Could be one of George and Mabel’s, as it was at “their” end of the block. We watched him/her spend several minutes trying to figure out (unsuccessfully) how to squeeze through a garden fence.
Not to worry. Mom (or Dad) was supervising from a nearby roof.
This baby was still in the early stages of flying lessons.
The baby crows who live a couple of blocks west of us are a week or two ahead in their Skills Development program.
Here’s one taking a deep breath and taking off from the hydro wires.
Baby crows are very vocal about their constant state of ravenous hunger.
It seems that the frazzled parents will try anything to get some peace and quiet.
Honestly, I can hardly bring myself to come back to the studio to get some work done.
I can’t bear to think what I might be missing in the ongoing reality show of Real Baby Crows of East Van.

“…eat this delicious bit of wood”. Thank you for the good laugh, June! I was on Bowen Island this week and had the pleasure of listening to crow and raven babies call (and call, and call…) for their meals. They are truly remarkable birds – bits of wood notwithstanding.
These are fabulous photos! I’ve never seen crow pictures in such detail.
