I saved one recently that had fallen in a lake . . fished him out and he sat shivering for about 20 minutes before he was dry enough to fly off. Never even thanked me.

Don from Spokane, United States

That hungry crow would willingly put up with being wet to have something to eat. I'm surprised he would let you get this close.

20 Dec 2015 3:16pm

@Don: They are used to me now Don. At times they take a piece of bread from my hands too!!

Oiva from Turku, Finland

Picture of than the Christmas song! Where a girl to feed the birds, although she is a very the poor and wants to give food to the birds! He heard a voice saying I'm not a bird, but your little brother! The small brother had died earlier! And thus he received a message from heaven! :-))))Haleja

Happy Sunday my good friend!

20 Dec 2015 3:36pm

@Oiva: Oiva !!! What a touching story...Actually we believe that the dead from our family or even our ancestors come to us for food crows. I feed the crows every morning..:))Thank you Oiva.. What strange similarities between cultures!

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

I was in a somewhat similar state an hour or so ago
Nobody offered me any bread though :)

Oiva from Turku, Finland

Sometimes it seems that even if the distance is long so you will find lots unity of culture! We have many beliefs associated with Christmas and the beautiful stories! Old people tell young people about their own experiences and it is wonderful to listen to what they have experienced the Christmas magic!:-))))HALEJA
