me, googling: *types "how to tell a crow I mean it no harm and want to be its friend"*
@dargi_dargon offer it peanut butter or raw eggs
@dargi_dargon they freaking love peanuts
@dargi_dargon since crows are hella smart, my method is "make sure they know you know they're there, then leave suitable food out for them." after that, it's just a matter of regular appearances. they'll learn what you look like and associate you with food quickly if you keep it up.
here's a list of things crows should and shouldn't eat, if you'd like to know more: http://avesnoir.com/the-10-best-and-worst-things-to-feed-a-crow/
@LexYeen 13/10, perfect response 😍
@dargi_dargon from what I've seen around. . . greet them.
Every time you walk into an area with a crow, make the same noise(maybe a specific whistle even just "hi crow"). It'll speed up their recognition of you as a human seperate from the rest. Be careful with this though because if you ever do them wrong, they will pass on your mugshot to their offspring and neighbouring flocks.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
