Schrodi is a very prolific catcher of small furry creatures, but never (to my knowledge) eats his prey. I feel that their deaths should at least benefit something – so I put the pathetic little bodies out in the creature feeding area. They always disappear – and a couple of times I’ve seen the badger take them in the webcam. However, of late they have started to disappear rapidly after they are put out – during the day.
Who should it be but a large crow (click the picture to see the video). On this occasion, I put out two dead voles, and the crow speared both of them in its beak before flying off with both of them.
R tells me that crows recognize individual humans and can like or dislike them dependent on how they are treated. I must be a very highly favoured person to this particular crow.
