I'm not really a mynah, I'm a Common Crow. I was clipped by a car and Carys is raising me until I'm old enough to be on my own. I'm just learning to eat on my own, and I can fly about 2m now!. Awards

Hi! My name is Buddie

I am a Mynah from Chilliwack, BC.


7 years old   M


I haven't tried anything except my hand-feeding mix: wet cat food, dry cat kibble and hard-boiled egg (complete with shell) all mixed together

The top of Carys's head, my favourite flapping spot

DOGS!!!!!!! and CARS!!!!!!

She lets me climb all over her and hand-feeds me. She moves her arm up and down so I get lots of flapping practise, and she's teaching me how to find my food in the grass.

I like to sit on Carys's shoulder whilst being hand-fed, and then wipe my beak on her shirt and/or hair. I love to use her long hair as a play gym!.

Carpe capillus, seize the hair!.

  Well, it's been a year!
How has it already been a year? Wow, not only birdies fly! Just wanted to let all of you know that I'm doing well out in the wild, and I even have a mate and a *gasp* baby! Carys was outside yesterday when I was feeding the babe, so I just had to do a few "awk"s to let her know that I'm well and happy.

Come visit me, Buddie & Chico 1990-2007.

  Hey Buddie...That was a touching story about you being free. I'm sure the Cary's will miss you, but they did you right and made you into the big strong bird you are. So glad you found a flock to help you out in the wild. Good luck being free!

Come visit me, Skittles, Miss "B", Sonny & Lincoln.

  Hey Buddie-
Hi Buddie - I'm so glad to hear that Cary took you in and took care of you until you were ready to go off on your own. I know that must have been a tough day for her but we all know how smart crows are and that you'll always remember her. I'll bet you'll even come back to visit.
My mom has some crow friends that always recognize her,even from a distance. They know that if they fly down to her, she always has a Cheese Doodle or another orange snack for them. What is it with crows and orange food anyway?
So, enjoy your free life, and always remember Cary for giving it to you.

  I'm off on my own!
Hi everyone, I want to thank you for all your wonderful comments.

As of 10:20am Monday June 15th I am a free bird! I flew strongly and landed in a tree near Carys's home, where I spent most of the day. We called back and forth a few times, so she knew that I was okay. Some adult crows come and found me; they're now teaching me the fine art of "how to be a crow".

I called to Carys on Tuesday as well, so she would know that I made it through the night. She took care of me for 2 weeks, and we'll never forget each other. I couldn't have made it without her! xxxx

Come visit me, Buddie & Chico 1990-2007.

  Hello Buddie!
Here is a big vote for you!!! We will be surprised if you are able to be left free and put back into the wild. You will not be afraid of people and will probably approach people, and someone may decide to "keep you" for themselves...then you won't be free any more. Or you may be caught by someone who is not "very nice". Our Dad is a conservation officer for the state of NJ and he knows alot about this sort of thing. We wish you the best. We have a "Buddy" in our flock, too. Fly on in for a visit any time.

  Hello Buddie
So nice to hear what a caring person Cary is. Welcome to the BC. We do not care that you are just a blackbird because all of us furry friends love each other. Hope you will come visit me. People in Canada are always nice to us yanks. Here is my vote. Hope you will reciprocate.


Sweet Pea

Come visit me, Sweet Pea.
