I love crows. There’s an intelligence about them that, as far as native Americans storytellers were concerned, made them equal to the coyote. Crows can remember the speed limits of the different roads they frequent. When they see a car coming, they’ll time their leap into the branches accordingly. One very seldom sees a dead crow along the road,  but many, many squirrels. I saw a couple today, and the crows were celebrating an absolutely delightful Thanksgiving.
