New Hampshire Crow Observation Logs

This section includes reports of various observers from the State of New Hampshire.

Southern New Hampshire: 12/99

Location_Description: backyard bordering on one square mile of forest.

Behavior: my crows are trained to respond to the ringing of my windchimes which I ring when I have a special treat for them.They especially like cashews, chopmeat, homemade suet(consisting of cornmeal, peanut butter, white flour, and bacon fat ) and scrambled eggs. I feed them a diet rich in protein especially in the spring when they are feeding their young. They always dunk their food in my birdbath and then carry it off. They also call outside my window in the morning to wake me up if I am late to feed them. I have observed them mobbing hawks many times. They are extremely cautious animals. There is always one crow first on the scene who is the designated lookout- no crow will come down from the trees until he is at his post and calls an all clear. They never bully the other birds, but wait their turn feeding from an old tree stump in the backyard.
