Jaklyn Larsen doesn’t like the term “social media influencer,” but when a crow decided to befriend her, she documented it on Twitter, Instagram and TikTok, making Clumsy famous and giving us a peek inside that strange and fantastic two-way relationship that some corvids have with humans. In this episode, we talked to Jaklyn about her creative endeavors, many of which involve plant and wildlife photography as well as her ongoing friendship with Clumsy the crow and his partner Jumpy. We also reached out to corvid expert Dr. Kaeli Swift for some more information on why some crows befriend humans.
