Rescued crows have become incredible pets and friends to this family. One of them actually enjoys catching peanuts that are thrown to him. Crows adore peanuts, and this one loves a game of catch at the same time!

This is the story of four rescued baby crows that were raised by a loving family. They learned to say "hello" and how to become independent. Eventually they were accepted by a family of wild crows. Even though they fly south each winter, they always return each spring to literally say hello to the family that saved them. It started when a nest of crows fell from a tree. An attempt was made to put them back, but the cows were orphaned and needed help.

This crow has been rescued when their nest fell from a tree. A veterinarian and her family raised the crows and they were released into the wild. They were accepted by a family of wild crows and still come back to visit, four years later. At least two will visit the backyard feeder and occasionally say "hello". This year, they have also started saying "mom" very clearly. They were not intentionally taught to say hello or mom. These birds are incredibly intelligent!

The family asked help from a veterinarian on how to raise the little crows. They needed to be fed every 2-3 hours. Crows are very social and highly intelligent, but also they are capable of speech!

      AWE! Such a sweet story! Thank you so much for rescuing these babies! If they ever fly to Texas for the winter I'll be sure and say "Hello" back! (Sharing this on my Facebook too!)
