    It all started when the crows made a nest in his front yard. One day he saw that both crow babies had fallen from the nest and weren't really able to fly, "We got them into a tree and the parents – pretty angry with us actually – took it from there and the little ones survived. We began feeding them soon after."

    In an interview with BoredPanda, Stuart said, "Birds – all kinds – have been a real focal part of my life; I love watching them, listening to their calls, identifying them… Oh! And helping them if they need help ... I'm not a real 'birder' with high powered binoculars or anything like that but they play an outsized role in my enjoyment of life."

    "Sometimes when I'm walking they'll fly with me, landing on the wires and branches above as I amble along." Stuart continued, "When we get home they like to land on the fence and wait to be fed." "Other times they simply "Caw! Caw!" at us… It's pretty obvious when they want food."

    None of the birds Stuart had rescued were taken from their parents. Stuart says, "They came to us as hurt, of having fallen from the nest and couldn't be returned, or had been abandoned. Please don't ever take a chick from its nest." This crow here is named Buddy, a rescue crow with a broken wing.
