Neighbourhood crow project (Port Coquitlam)


 ^^observed over several days, this poor crow has an acorn stuck on it's beak.
^^a day later and starting to look a little ungroomed. S/he was very 
hungry at this point but had trouble picking up and swallowing food.

^^anting crow
^^anting is common in corvids and some other bird families. It's thought the acid 
sprayed by the irritated ants helps rid the birds of parasites.
