I live in Northern California. We have crows, ravens, and other corvids here. I would very much like to feed and watch my neighborhood crows. I have seen and saved many lists on what to offer them. I still have a few questions though.
I have noticed several areas around town that have HUGE murders. Our local big box, crappy items store has a ton of them in the morning. However, I only see one or two around my house. If I feed them, will more come? I would like that very much.
I have noticed many jays around my house. If I feed the crows, will the jays run them off? Do they compete with one another? I don’t want anyone to get hurt.
What is the best time to feed them? I would like to feed them more than just on the weekends. However, I go to work at 5:30 in the morning. Can I feed them in the evening? Could I shoot for like 5:00 pm? That would be a great time for me. But I’m mostly concerned about making it a great time for them.
I want to do this right. I would hate to make them frustrated or angry because I didn’t plan things out well.
