Hiking Mercer Meadows Jan 28, 2019

Well, no hawks today, however, I did find 2 crows on a tree next to Rosedale Lake, which was right next to the playground. They were both preening each other. One of them flew to another tree, and its mate soon followed. It caught a worm on a branch, but it dropped it and didn’t bother to pick it back up. I’m sure it was too intimidated by my presence. That’s one reason why I didn’t want to get any closer to those crows.

I said in the video that the crow was feeding its mate, but that is incorrect, they were actually preening each other. One of them preened itself after preening its mate.

I do want to backtrack to a half-hour before I saw those 2 crows. I saw one crow fly over to a tree shortly before I walked past it and it was cawing at me. Unfortunately I didn’t think of recording that.
