CROW Story Time is a free program focusing on conservation education and community engagement. This program is designed for children and accompanying adults. Adults are asked to enjoy story time with their child for a fun and interactive experience.

This week’s story is “Crows: An Egg-to-Sky Story” by Margaret Peot. Book description: “This book describes how crows meet, mate, nest, raise their young, and learn to fly, and their unique way of communicating. Crows are known to roost in large numbers in the fall and winter for safety, protection from the weather, and to find a mate. Young crows start fledging when they are 30-40 days old, sometimes tumbling to the ground when their flying skills have not yet developed. Mature crows will mob predators to protect grounded youngsters, while encouraging the fledglings to fly to safety. Crows are extremely intelligent, social birds. Their language is unique and not entirely understood by scientists. This introduction to the natural history of crows for children also includes a brief discussion of the difference between crows and ravens.”
