American crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) that came into the rescue this weekend. Possible broken wing, dehydrated, and a little thin.
Very cool species of bird that will eat almost anything. From fruits and seeds, to insects, small lizards, eggs, and even other birds.
The origin of placing scarecrows in grain fields resulted from the crow’s incessant damaging and scavenging, although crows assist farmers by eating insects otherwise attracted to their crops.
These guys do pack one heck of a bite and have nice strong toes.
