There was this particular crow that used to hang around the pier and pavilion very frequently. I haven’t seen him lately, but am told he still comes around. I think he must have used to be a pet because he was rather tame, and had a yellow band around one of his legs. We just called his “Sam”.
I worked several years on the pier and became rather attached to this bird, he loved Dorito’s. He wound loiter up on the outer rafters with all the other birds.. I usually kept a bag of Nacho Cheese Dorito’s in jacket my pocket.. and as soon as I took them out he would see them and would dive down, swooping low across the picnic tables, startling people eating there and when he reached me he would land on my shoulder and let me feed him. It drew a lot of attention, I knew a lot of people video taped him with their phones, but I was never able to find any of those videos on utube or anything.
Well, it eventually got to the point that I couldn’t even walk on the pier without him coming down and residing on my shoulder.. he would never let me pet him, but he wouldn’t fly away either.
Well enough about birds!
Anyone else notice most of the part15 stations are in predominantly in the southern states? I wonder why.
