I could write a short book about Murphy. all action, no descriptions .
Later in my life I got another crowling from a petting zoo because the crow was EVIL. I tried my ass off to make this crow civilized and he would peck everyone till he drew blood. He was no Murphy. I called him Loki. AFter a year f getting pecked by the steel jawed monster, I took him over to the Conowingo Dam and released him to be among other crows.
Earlier I clipped his wings so he couldnt fly , so before I could release him it took several months before he molted an regrew his wingtip feathers so he could have close motor skills in his wings.
Loki was a real moonster and he even pecked me bloody as I released him.
Im still looking for a pet crow I have several that hang around the big barn in the back field and I ofetn just go and throw corn and stuff to them. They all gather up when they see me but dont come too close.
Thats the first step
