Canuck the Crow and Canada Post now pals

After a combative introduction, Canuck the crow has started palling around with Tyler McLeod. The mail carrier for Canada Post has the bird firmly on his side after his aggressive antics halted deliveries to three addresses last spring. “I was getting scratched, pecked every day. He was dive-bombing onto my mail and blasting mail everywhere.” How did McLeod win over his new friend? A bag of peanuts in his mail sack did the trick.
Now the pair makes deliveries together. Canuck even likes to sit shotgun in McLeod’s van. “You wanna come with me bro? Deliver this mail?” he said to his friend perched on his shoulder.

McLeod wonders if Canuck’s temperament has mellowed because he found love. Canuck is starting a family with his new nest mate.
