Getting schooled by @swiftcrow on crows today. This is why I love the internet. You don’t know what you don’t know till someone come along and shows you something new. And there is a lot I don’t know. I’m about to go down a rabbit hole.
***note*** my last post wasn’t a crow at all, it was a raven. And before today I didn’t know the difference. But the symbolism regarding the crow was legit.
On September 26, 2017, 6 crows were released into the wild. In contrast to the previous release, the group released was made of 4 males and 2 females rather than just males. On October 11, 2017, another group of 5 crows, 3 males and 2 females, was also released into the area. The first group introduced also formed social groups similar to those expected of the species, and also responded to stressors in the environment, showing awareness of surroundings. The 2017 birds seem to be doing significantly better in the wild than those introduced in 2016.
