Despite the fact that I look like a horrible mess, this is one of my favorite photos of myself to date, taken in the summer of 2016. This American crow was cautiously eating cat food on my deck to the surprise of me and all of my cats. The huntress I had died, and the rest of them are all huge babies. So they just watched him eat their food. Despite his size, I reckoned him for a fledgling since he was on the ground searching for food and didn't want to fly. He had no injuries and gazed at me with gorgeous, intelligent eyes. I perched him at the top of a 10 foot pole where he sat and watched me for hours. Some time that evening he flew off.
