In 2007, a baby crow ended up in my yard that was rejected or whatever happened by its mother. I named him "Crowey" ( super original ). When he was old enough, I let him fly away and I hoped for the best. I didn't know if he was alive or dead until a few days later, he returned and he continued to visit and/ or follow me off and on for a few years after. I could tell it was him from his voice as I busted his squawker once when I was feeding him as a baby. He had a unique squawk after that.

In 2011 a pair of ducks showed up on my doorstep, one with a busted foot and the other with a injured wing. I named them "Quacky and Quacker" (super original). I fed/helped them and let them hang out at my place and after they were healthy, they left.Now they return at the same time of year ,every year, and hang at my place for about 3 to 6 weeks. When they first show up in the spring, they are very vocal, chattering away and telling me about their 'duck day' or year.

In 2013, I ended up saving a bat that got into trouble. I think I named him 'Radar'. He wasn't with me for very long -less than a week, but it remembered, and it visited every night for a month until I left the area I was in at the time.

The pet turtle (name-Wrinkles) comes for a visit once in a while but doesn't say much. There is a slightly smaller one around called "Speed". I don't have a pic of him...he's to fast.

There's a random black kitty that comes around
