One thing about Danbury…there’s lots of crows. It kind of freaked me out at first, I usually associate them with death. I also tend to, when living in NYC, associate crows as one of the only birds that would be around in the winter, to pick at garbage. It’s not a compelling subject matter.
Once a long time ago, in another condo complex, in another city in Connecticut, I found a woman caring for a crow. I was a bit surprised, but she told me the crow had broken his wing and she had nursed him back to health. Since she had the same associations with crows as I do, she looked up (in days prior to Google) crow’s behavior, and was quite impressed. Among other things, they care for their elderly.
