THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  - June 18, 2019 (LSN)  –  We found this fledgling crow on James Street in Thunder Bay this morning in obvious distress. My wife and I sat with him a while, hoping he would improve but as he didn’t, we thought it best to take him home and contact wildlife rescue authorities.  Flying above us were his parents, circling in obvious alarm and distress.  We could see the little bird look up, his eyes briefly gazing on his parents for what would be the last time. A kind resident brought out a box and we lined it with our sweaters to add some measure of comfort. Once home, we called authorities but the little bird died minutes later, literally gasping for breath.
