I have a real treat for You tonight: 3 Crows in the nest! This is a feast for the eyes and NO, we will not be eating crow here. People in the past have eaten crow and in some cultures, they still do. I was a Chef in Texas and never prepared a crow. I have shared info below about all you ever need to know about "eating crow" (thanks to Wikipedia).
The feature attraction with these crows is last day in the nest. Tomorrow they fledge! Your photostudy is from my rooftop deck and linked to the G+ Photo Albums Enjoy!

I have circled the nest with an "O"
Zooming the camera more, you can see one of the black birds.
It is a very big nest (compared to songbirds)

Look how cute the 3 babies are!

CallsCrows make a wide variety of calls or vocalizations. Crows have also been observed to respond to calls of other species; presumably, this behavior is learned because it varies regionally. Crows' vocalizations are complex and poorly understood. Some of the many vocalizations that crows make are a "Koww", usually echoed back and forth between birds; a series of "Kowws" in discrete units; a long caw followed by a series of short caws (usually made when a bird takes off from a perch); an echo-like "eh-aw" sound; and more. These vocalizations vary by species, and within each species they vary regionally. In many species, the pattern and number of the numerous vocalizations have been observed to change in response to events in the surroundings (e.g. arrival or departure of crows).
