I'd never wanna eat crow. I have a real liking for them. When I was a little kid living on acres and acres of walnut trees, we had a couple as pets that my mom raised from babies. I don't even remember how we ended up with them but they are awesome birds and very, very smart. I know that they are also very common but that doesn't take away from my affinity for them. I love their loud caw. Takes me back to my childhood when I see and hear them.
