Next door's cat got it. It has an injured (not broken) wing. It's going to the vets in the morning.

It needs a name. Ideas please.

That's bad, isn't it? Well it is late ...

Oh Mortimer! From the books whose names I can't remember. I rather fancy getting the vet to call out Sheryl Crow though. Or Edgar Allen Crow. It could be a rook. I have no idea what the difference is.

Sarah - I think it has something to do with the legs.

How about Odile, or Ciara?

I like Sheryl best tho.

Ill google tomorrow. Mortimer is too good to pass on, I loved Bernard Cribbins reading those books.

Nevermore grin

Hope the little birdy made it through the night.

I would call it Adrian. I am dying to call an animal Adrian.

We hav rescued a lot of crows, they thrive on homemade sheperds pie with lots of garlic! Ours would fly down out of the sky when called and land on our heads! The only name we ever came up with was Crow though...

Update: Mortimer is alive and well, has eaten his dog food, and is off to the vets this morning.

He's rather noisy confused

As if we don't have enough friggin crows here already! They're bastard birds - eat all the eggs and baby birds. Hate 'em.

SarahStratton Tue 14-Jun-11 07:32:16

That's nature. That's what crows do, that and eat dead things.

They eat baby birds to feed their own chicks, tis natures way and has been since the beginning of bird-dom. Animals/birds are not inherently evil because of the way they eat/feed, it's just what they do.

Apart from Dolphins. They are truely sinister.

glad Mortimer made it through the night.
could you train him to sit on your shoulder like a Parrot?

Still can't remember what that book was.

Arabel's Raven by Joan Aiken smile

AtYourCervix Tue 14-Jun-11 08:15:36

of course!

Corvids make nice pets.

Crows are great birds - very intelligent. A rook has a patch of white round its beak, crows are all black.

I'm glad he's safe and is doing well, - I found a baby crow drowned in my garden pond last year sad
