A couple of different people have fed the ravens on regular occasions. Either the ravens recognized them or they were on the same schedule. :) They would always come out for the free lunch buffet. They also recognize my dog. They see her and taunt her. She goes after them, even while they're flying above her. Then they come back around and tease her again. They're very smart birds.

Nevermore will I doubt the pattern recognition of ravens.
Still, they're no mynah birds.

I'm pretty sure those are ravens, not crows. Look at the tail and the beak. "The crow’s tail feathers are basically the same length, so when the bird spreads its tail, it opens like a fan. Ravens, however, have longer middle feathers in their tails, so their tail appears wedge-shaped when open." "Ravens have bigger, curvier beaks relative to crows." https://www.audubon.org/news/how-tell-raven-crow

Given that you were wearing a face mask (yes?), it is more likely it was your dog that the crow recognized.

Yes, they are amazing! Check out California State Parks' CRUMB CLEAN campaign, launched in an effort to keep out corvids, including jays, from predating other birds that used to be separated from these predators by habitat.
