Crazy Crow

Can you see the crow perched in the top of the spruce (Picea pungens) tree? That crazy crow has spent the last three days sitting up there cawing his head off! As soon as another crow comes along he swoops down, chases it away then promptly returns to sit. And caw. Now, I know nothing about crow behavior or crow society, so I wonder: Is this crow protecting a former or choosing a new nest site? Is this crow calling for an old mate or looking for a new one? Is he claiming an entire territory visible from the tallest tree around? Whatever the problem is, I hope it gets resolved soon. CAW!
