Clever Crow Pulls The Perfect Prank On Vultures To Get Her Way

In the earlier part of this year, a family in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States set up a trail camera in their backyard to observe local wildlife. Initially, their aim was to capture the activities of groundhogs traversing their property.

They began offering healthy treats to these creatures, resulting in endearing footage like this:

As time passed, the family decided to share their wildlife encounters with a broader audience, creating a YouTube channel named Mid-Atlantic Backyard.

Soon, it wasn’t just the groundhogs gaining attention on their channel.

The family’s addition of a water bowl in view of the camera attracted a diverse array of animals, including turkey vultures and occasionally crows.

One of Mid-Atlantic Backyard’s most unforgettable moments featured these birds.

In a particular video, a pair of vultures are seen hovering near the water bowl when a crow, not keen on sharing, arrives. Opting for strategy over confrontation, the crow implements a clever trick:

This cunning tactic by the crow was successful.

The family behind Mid-Atlantic Backyard expressed their amazement at the crow’s ability to not only conceive such a strategy but to execute it flawlessly. They found amusement in the vultures’ baffled reactions and the crow’s comical dash to the water dish as the vultures chased each other.

This incident highlights nature’s often overlooked complexity and the intriguing interactions among its inhabitants. Capturing and sharing these moments of natural ingenuity and beauty is the goal of Mid-Atlantic Backyard.

The family notes the rewarding experience of filming a wide variety of wildlife, appreciating each species’ unique beauty and resourcefulness.
