I’m not kidding! The ones which hang around this neighborhood always know when I am thinking of putting some unwanted food out for them before I go outside with it. Sometimes if I think about doing just that too long one of them will land on the garage roof for a second so that I see him from the window above my PC to remind me to hurry up.
As soon as I come back inside, one of the crows will appear to see what I have offered them outdoors under the big spruce. Then he will tell his group there’s a meal to be had. The next thing they do is go about hiding the pieces of food here and there to be retrieved later. It’s fun to watch them find hiding places.
Have you ever noticed that crows are the first to snatch the eyeballs of road kills? Ewwww! Maybe that is why they are so clairvoyant. Haha!
Recycling food is better than putting it into the waste stream. I either compost it in the compost pit, bring it out back, flush it if it is soupy or put it out for the crows and squirrels if I know it will be something they like. Other than that, I put out beef suet and various kinds of bird seed for the other birds twice a day. They are always waiting for me at those times.
