Washington, D.C. Crow Observation Logs

Updated: June 20, 2001.

This section includes reports of various observers from the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.).

Washington, D.C.: November 1997 (reported 2/25/01)

Location_Description: A single crow flew down to a trash can in a Macdonald's restuarant parking lot. A large paper bag had been left upright on the top of the can. After looking into the bag, the crow then grasped the bottom edge of the bag in its beak, and began shaking the bag. Many french fries fell out onto the ground. The crow then hopped to the ground, and ate these in a leisurely fashion.

Comments: This bird appearred very comfortable and competent at doing this sort of "fast food dining." (Mark Pasquarette)

Washington, D.C.: 12/11/99

Location_Description: FDR Memorial

Behavior: I started feeding a mated pair in March of 1999. They had only one baby crow, as far as I know. I would feed the male and female about 4 or 5 days a week during the breeding season and during the summer. The pair had one baby. I fed the crows mainly dog chow, puppy chow, hamburger, peanuts, and an occasional egg. I fed the mom,pop, and baby bird and then a fourth crow showed up during the summer. Now I feed them only about twice a week, but they wait for me to come by and feed them. (Mark Matolak)
