Many many years ago, I rescued a black crow. I think it has been learning to fly and never made it back to the nest. It was all alone by the side of the road. I kept it for 6 months. It never learned to fly. It could use its wings to land but not to take off. Even landings were not that good because once it ripped the under of its wing on some wire. I do not think the vet ever stitched a crow wing before!
During the days it was free to wander around the house and then one day it disappeared. I wish the story had a happy ending, I loved this bird. Wish I could say it finally learned to fly and got back to its crow family. I don't think it did, more likely a buzzard got it. Its name was Bataki, it's the name of the Raven in the book "Nils Holgersson" , there are crows too in the story though but their names did not appeal to me and they were not as nice as the raven was !
