Smorgasbord Afternoon Video – The generosity of a crow… sharing his bread.

This crow shows his generous nature by sharing his bread roll with a creature that might well have been destined for his dinner.  It says mouse but I think it might be big enough to be a rat….Amazing.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at

  1. My browser claims that the generous crow video is currently unavailable… but I am aware that crows are probably much smarter (and perhaps also more empathic) than we presumptuous humans have given them credit for over the years!

  2. I have a deep love and respect for crows and their intelligence and complex family and social structures. I once saw an adult crow watch a younger crow — the mouths of the young are bright red. The young crow was in the gutter of a busy street foraging about. The adult waited until the nearness of the oncoming traffic should have caused the young one to get out of the away, and at the very last minute, swooped down and scooped the young one out of the street. Amazing creatures

    • Thank you Mary.. and I find them fascinating… We have a bird feeding tree outside our kitchen window and the seed feeders and fat holders are not designed for large crows. But one has taught himself to pole dance and assumes the most complex contortions to enable him to peck at the fat balls. He is messy so the ground beneath is filled with his mates who vie for the droppings. Very comical to watch..
