“It is my sad duty to inform all of you that Canuck and Cassiar’s babies did not survive this year” said Shawn Bergman in a Facebook post.

“To be blunt, I’m devastated. The parents are doing okay but are visibly sad. I’m not a Crow expert, but I now know what it looks and sounds like when a Crow cries”.

It was announced in May that Canuck was going to become a father after he had been nest building with a female crow named Cassiar.

The larger than life crow has been seen getting a ride on the skytrain and even stealing a knife.
