Room With a View
As if Fish Crows weren't funny enough — with their "Uhn-Uhn"..."Uh-Huh" calls, we name them "the bird who can't make up its mind." Add to this a funny nesting place.
We're sitting drinking coffee and all of a sudden we see a Fish Crow fly in with nesting material in its bill and disappear into our neighbor's covered chimney! We look at one another thinking simultaneously, "did you see what I just saw....they're building a nest in there!!"
Evidently there is enough space for a Fish Crow nest, a nice roof over their heads and a great view of the surrounding area. They can probably see the ocean from there. Wonder what their real estate taxes will be.
