Young Couple Finds a Home to Raise a Family in San Mateo County – Is This a Good Time to BUY? It’s the BESTFriday, May 9th, 2014
Here’s a new crow family nesting high above the 101:
Good thing that this is Best Buy instead of the USPS, right? I mean official United States Postal Service spokesmodel Augustine Ruiz prolly would have shot these boids with a 12-gauge if this were post office property, I think.
U.S. postal officials continue to deny that birds were harmed in the course of the tree trimming. A postal maintenance worker observing the tree-trimming on Saturday reported that no birds were injured, said U.S. Postal Service spokesman Augustine Ruiz.
The injured birds at International Bird Rescue, and a dead bird photographed by The Chronicle, must have been hurt in unrelated incidents, Ruiz said.
“We would never do anything intentionally to harm any living creature,” he said. “We have a very proud tradition of issuing stamps to promote the preservation and conservation of wildlife and nature.”
Anyway, good luck, crows!
Of course, part of the business of hawks is raiding the nests of crows and ravens, so this kind of harassment is understandable.

Canon 400mm f/4.0 DO IS Diffractive Optics lens at f/8.0. (Too expensive, overrated, has weird bokeh at times, needs to be stopped down, lacks a focus preset ring, but aside from that a decent lens I s’pose. I got a good deal on a used copy then I later sold it for the same price, so I guess that’s Even Steven. Canon’s 300mm 2.8 IS design from the 1990’s remains superior. Canon would have been a lot better off investing resources devoted to the Diffractive Optics program on something else, it would seem…)
