I found a crow that has an injuried eye and the other is fine, he acts somewhat alright and I currently have him in a large box that's open since he doesn't get out of it. He doesn't eat and I give him water that he gladly drinks up but he can't fend for himself currently. What can I do?
Crows are very smart birds. They're intelligence would amaze you! You're very lucky to have found one.
Try different types of foods. Some of them like nuts and seeds while others can/ do like meat.
I intentionally attract crows to my yard. I have a water fountain out there and I put food out everyday at the same time. I put out pieces of bread, popped popcorn (without any salt or butter), raw peanuts still in the shell (no salt!).
Try googling how to attract crows to your yard and it'll give you information as to what they like to eat.
Give him a variety of the different types of food that they like. When he gets hungry enough he'll eat.
We’d suggest that you take him to a wildlife rehabilitation center in your area. There are directories online that help you to locate one near you, or you can call a local veterinarian — the staff may be able to recommend a center or have further advice.
Here is a list by state by the Humane Society of the United States:

Hi all. I seem to have tamed 2 mated king parrots, with the help of a friend. Spot and dot. They come to my house multiple times a day. My plan is for them to handfeed and get comfy with that > have them settle on my arm, without nibbling on my fingers... And lastly, I want to pat them. Not the wisest thing perhaps or even achievable. Thanks for supplying this information. :-)
I hand tamed an injured Cedar Waxwing. Her wing was hurt and she was in total shock. Her name was Witherwings. She just flew away.
We have a crow that comes all day everyday we call him/her? crowie it even comes to call now and lets us stroke him and we talk to him all the time people who walk past our garden can't believe how tame he is .If he has not had some food for a certain time he sits on our bin and taps on our window and then he sits on our fence most of the day only flying off now and again but always returns.We wondered if he has been brought up by a human with him being so tame what do you think .
What is exactly the definition of "taming"? Will it just stick around my house for food or can I learn it tricks and let it sit on my finger and such? Like a petbird? If it is like a pet bird ot would be a really fun hobby because I can't have a petbird of my parents because of all the downsides but then there are none! :D So is that possible or are they just coming for food? Thanks in advance!
I have recently captured A sparrow it was injured and has slowly been nursed back to health as it is not fully recovered As well as it's flock is long gone I can not free it yet but before I do I want the bird to be able to trust me completely so we can continue to be friends after I free him
