Vancouver's most famous crow is now a proud parent.

Shawn Bergman has documented Canuck the crow's recent nest building efforts over the past weeks with a female crow named Cassiar and watched the pair as they moved to sitting on the eggs.

"Through countless hours of standing and observing through a telescope (provided by neighbors Barbara and Brian), a pair of binoculars (provided by my friend Ray), and of course the naked eye. Accompanied by hours of reading research online, and through consulting with Ornithologist Rob Butler....I am extremely happy and proud to announce that on April 29, 2018 Canuck and Cassiar became parents," says Bergman in a Facebook post.

"I'm not sure how many eggs there were in the nest, therefore I'm not sure how many little ones there are. But with all the activity in the nest, Canuck and Cassiar are going to be quite busy for the next little while."

"I will post further details of how all of this was discovered, but for now please help me Congratulate Canuck and Cassiar on the hatching of their very first group of kids," he says.
