Last night there was a crow on our back patio. It was clearly in distress, and died after not too long. Concerned about diseases like west Nile, I contacted a couple wildlife rehabilitators, and they suggested contacting Tufts Wildlife Clinic in the morning. The clinic said they didn’t test for these things, and that I could leave the crow in the woods. Online resources had recommended double bagging it and putting it in the trash, but I didn’t feel at all good about that, and much preferred the suggestion from Tufts. So the crow is now resting alongside the Charles River.
