Crow feeders

I saw from my window a man telling a lady not to feed the crows, because it annoys everyone. I quite like the crows in the neighbourhood, their existence is part of the beauty in the west end. I thought about giving my two cents but the interaction was quick. There will always be people feeding the crows and if other residents don’t like it, nobody is forcing them to stay in the neighbourhood. Come anytime, crow feeders :-)

People who feed crows should be commended, not condemned.

Just prefer crow followers over Twitter followers.

Anywhere but Vancouver and I'd agree, but Crows are best left alone in Vancouver.

"Don't feed the crows because it annoys everyone." People who assume their annoyances are everyone's annoyances deserve to be regularly annoyed.

Crows displace native bird species. Yeah, they are smart so we like them but encouraging them will only kill off more birds and reduce our diversity.

Worse than crows

Are starlings. Crows serve as neighbourhood sentinels and are smart. They remember your face, they mourn their dead. Starlings are non-native, swarm and consume food supplies, eat native species chicks, take over their nests and cause millions of dollars in crop damage. They carry disease and cause a lot of property damage. So if anyone wants to be pissed off at a bird type, make it starlings. Don't let them nest in your neighbourhood!

... as they're being fed birdseed and not bread, I don't see a problem.

Crows harrsas house cats. And if people would just keep their pet cats indoors, we would be over run with songbirds in a couple of seasons.

I started feeding the crows in my neighbourhood a couple of years ago and I've never been dive bombed since. Having said that, whenever I see the dingbat that goes around E Van feeding pigeons scooping seeds from her little cart, I think of an old song called
"Poisoning pigeons in the park"
