In that first picture he almost looks like a bulldog standing there with his chest sticking out.
Cool guy!I like your new layout!Fresh!
we have tons of crows here and i have a hard time getting them because they are black, you did good getting the details of his feathers. black is hard to photograph
love the new look....I have them showing up with dog food in their mouths...one had a piece of cereal...great shots...
I love crows. We have a local flock that will come here now and then. I like their family structure and the way they sound..If you want to see what I look like and sound like you can go to my blogs as I have the interview posted on them today.
We get 'em in the front yard---there's even a big nest in our oak tree there where two of 'em bed down. I like it when they come up close to our front windows and the full sun hits their jet-black feathers and it produces a bluish-black sheen that is really beautiful and unique.
Black bird pie came to my mind as well.
Love,love, love your caption to this post! Your new layout is stunning! I had a tame crow as a child...never again, I used to shut the door on him when he wasn't allowed inside and he proceeded to peck a hole through our front door!
Those are fantastic shots. I do get a kick out of them, but I will admit that they are frustrating me right now because as soon as I put out food for the feral cat, they descend on it. I swear that they sit and wait. Darn birds are smarter than the cat.
You must of been hidden pretty good. Those are amazing close ups. We have a couple that have been checking our place our watching to see where new nests are being built. They are beautiful though.
What fantastic photos. I have to admit to not liking these birds very much - there's something ugly (can I say that?!) about them. And yet, there's such beauty there too.(They're still too greedy for my liking. AND they're a danger to our lambs when they come - that's when my dislike of them gets nasty!) Love your blog - found you at Everyday Ruralty, which is fab too (don't you love today's interview. Too clever!) x
I throw peanuts out and the pheasants come...The pictures are great!
I think I need you to come and take photos our our son's falcon. Then you can draw it!
So nice and beautiful images. Have a nice day.
You captured our little black friend wonderfully. So close by. Beautiful!Hugs and kisses for a sweet Tuesday, my friend xxxxx
Great shots you were able to capture! The crows here on our ranch head directly for the walnut trees and grab one, fly over pavement and drop them to crack them open....smart birds.
Great pictures of this crow feasting.
That is one way to get good shots of a crow.If i liked them a little better,I would try this,but something within me will not allow me to feed the crows.I would however like to get some good shots.Hmmm,what to do?I'll just enjoy your pictures. Blessings,Ruth
I like all birds, including the crow, but I had never noticed the feather pattern you pointed out. It DOES look like fish scales, but pretty. Thanks for opening my eyes!
You made that crow one happy crow! They are really pretty when you get a closer look at them!Have a Great Day!Angela
I love Crows, such intelligent birds.
Great pictures, he looks like one happy bird.--Inger
Looks like a new blog over here! It looks nice (as always:)I do hope he doesn't choke on that peanut;)
Love the close-up's, T! You do a great job of getting sequential shots, too!
I love the way he takes those high steps -- bit like a German goose-walking soldier! :)
Great shots of the crow! Crows tend to come no closers than the edges of the area around our house and outbuildings that I keep mowed, but then, we don't offer peanuts either. :-)
They are noisy, but your great captures show that they even have patterns in their shiny pitch black coat! I didn't know that! Well done!
I don't think I've noticed the details of the feathers like that before - great shots. Of course now I'll be looking for some to see if they have feathers like that too!
Great shots, they are piggies!
I just love crows!
