Today, I noticed a crow struggling on a tree. It was trying to break a twig using all its might, flapping its wings and leaning back. Unlike other birds, which collect sticks found on the ground, Carrion Crows, Rooks and Jays use fresh sticks, that the break from trees as the material for the main framework of their nests. Then they will look for bark, hair and grass as lining lining on the ground. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts, the crow moved to another part of the tree, and this time it was successful first try, cleanly snapping the stick. It then rearranged the position of the stick to pick it up securely balanced from the middle, and flew away. The crow nesting season has already started.
