My name is Jenn and I love corvids. I study wild American crows and am constantly impressed by them, even after years of working with them. My goal on this blog is to spread the corvid love by sharing information and dispelling common myths.

Feel free to ask me anything :)

These are truly some of the most fascinating birds on the planet!

 

It’s nesting season for crows in NY and how is The Rip Van Winkle Rod & Gun Club celebrating? Crow hunting contest!

This contest is happening literally 3 days before the end of the legal season (March 31). NO bag limit, and toxic shot is allowed. So even if you don’t like crows, this means any injured, but surviving crows later taken by hawks, owls, and other predators (including pets) risk poisoning as well.

These contests still happen, not just in NY, but all over the country. The photos of the dead crows are from a hunt in Texas.

This is NOT responsible hunting. Please note that most hunters do not approve of or endorse these contests!  Hunters have just as much reason to protest these killing contests as anyone else.
