The Cleaners of Walmart

My dad and I saw these two tagged crows at a Walmart here in Iowa. One of the crows which was eating something nasty looking in the parking lot had the letters CW on it's tag which we said meant a Cleaner of Walmart! We later came to find out that they were part of a biology study being done at a local college.

I have never seen this sort of tag on a corvid before. LOL.

Interesting - you might be interested in two books on corvids: In the Company of Crows and Ravens, and Crows: Encounters with the Wise Guys. Corvids are fascinating birds!

Nice find. They do banding at places like that, with is probably why they were there.

That's interesting! I've never heard of tagged crows before.
