I like them because they eat the snails in my garden and not the plants altho they will eat the young of other birds

I really miss the crows. We used to have a ton when I was a kid, but I think the West Nile Virus killed most of them. They used to line the telephone wires behind my house (30 or more birds) & caw up a storm. (Although it was unnerving when they'd all sit there quietly, like in The Birds!) In my area, many people have gone years without seeing any. But we're starting to see a few, here and there, the past couple of years. Sure, they're loud & can be bullies, but they have good qualities, too. They clean up roadkill, they're pretty, smart & amusing. I really hope they come back.

I am living in Toronto Ontario, Canada and the crows disappeared there a couple of years ago. I did see a couple of them this spring but they might just have been passing through. I am in Nova Scotia at the moment and there are crows and ravens everywhere. It is good to see them eventhough they can be as much of a pest with garbage as racoons. As a kid I had a pet raven and I can tell you that they are extremely intelligent. Robb

I have a whole murder of them that overwinter in the red pine across the road from me. I enjoy watching their antics as they try to figure out how to fit their big bodies on my birdfeeders. Thet usually give up and go back to picking through the compost pile, or taking off with the whole piece of fruit I set out for them. They and the turkeys both love small apples, peaches, pears, berries and any heels of bread that aren't going to be eaten anyway.

I'm glad to see other members put in a good word for this clever, indispensable bird. In my neighborhood, they're definitely present, but more often heard than seen. I've only met one myself at close range; it was standing in my driveway and not at all put out at the sight of me.

These large birds are definitely hated by the Mockingbirds in our area. The Mockingbirds "dive-bomb" these Crows until they finally give up and move out of the area. We have seen them raiding nests, and I'm quite sure that is why they are not welcome here.

Plentiful here, and not afraid to waddle out of the way of oncoming traffic rather than fly. Occasionally seen in the company of seagulls, they do as they please. I personally have not witnessed any intelligent behavior, though I understand they recognize individual people...my father was cawed at because he'd had to replace his hard hat, and the local crows didn't recognize him 'til he spoke to them.
