Tracking: Another misspelling or mispronunciation of the word 'Buche', referring to the throat of a bird. Feathers stay stuck in the craw is the source when preening itself. Its a term for something that sticks in the throat. The version of the word is when talking about something that I have always found bad or distasteful as 'that really sticks in my craw'. 'Crawl' may be a colloquialism or a regional variants of craw.
