Found this bug by the river near me. does anybody know what the hell it is? I've already looked through an identification database and this has the body shape of a conifer seed bug, but I've never seen something with that kind of design
I just had an amazing crow experience I wanted to share with you all.
So I saw on PBS a few years ago that show that explains crows purposely drop nuts in traffic so cars will smash them open and then the crow will go down and claim the meaty nut innards.
I just had one do this to me.
I was driving through a neighborhood, about 20 mph, and this crow landed in the middle of the road some feet ahead of me, I don't know, like 200 maybe? So as I approach he's slowly moving into my lane, and the closer I get I can see he's pushing some object with his beak. I couldn't tell exactly what it was, but it was round and dark, so probably a walnut, but may a large acorn, I'm not sure.
So he pushes it a little, then looks up at me driving toward him, then pushes it a little further, etc, like he's trying to line it up exactly with my tires. Just before I get to him he flies off so I'm sure that's what his goal was, he wanted me to smash his food open for him. I don't know if I hit it, but I made sure to go directly straight, trusting his judgement and that he lined it up correctly.
I hope you had a good meal crow bro and I'm honored to have helped.
