Jonne Euroshopper : "The world started to look beautiful again." I teared up, I've been there.

Bave Drokie : Sean, in my opinion, you are the luckiest person to have a bond like you have with Canuck. I love crows too...they're very underrated I think 😊

Mia T Rex : I have chronic anxiety/depression with PTSD and the Crows in my neighborhood have become my friends and almost family. My life is so much better because of them.

Dawn of Shellbourne : Beautiful documentary. Thank you Shawn for sharing your story of Canuck with all of us. You have done right by him every step of they way. Well done.

redrumax : so sweet, and humans are such beasts to hurt Canuck. I would be devastated if I was Sean.

PookiePye : The perfect man doesn't exi-

Rob Richards : It is on my bucket list to go to Vancouver and visit the rookery. Maybe even a trip to the east side.

AnnemieM : We all could have animal friendships but to many humans are not friendly and teach the wild animals not to trust us. I befriended two ducks at the park that followed me home and now they come for breakfast nearly every day. I give them grain. Bread is bad stuff and will cause premature death. Anyway, my wild duck friends, Sherlock and Matilda are very close to me and even stand in the door way to my flat to let me know they are there.

Sweaty Dynamite : This little documentary really touched me. As someone who has depression, and a fascination with crows, it warms my heart to see such companionship between Shawn and Canuck. Definetely putting it on my bucket list to go to Vancouver to see Canuck and the Rookery, don't how I'll get there from Ontario, but I hope to go someday. Thank you for such wonderful video.
