Be Very Careful
Crows can carry the West Nile Virus. My boss Dr. Anne McDonald says there is some question of whether they can transmit the virus if their fluids touch any open cuts or something. As your health is not at its prime Beth you may be especially vulnerable.
BTW If the bird dies I think that the public health dept wants the bodies of all dead crows sent for testing.
