I never realized... that is really really cool! Hey a question for you. Is there really a difference between crows and ravens?

Amy said...

Looks like the wind is blowing him! Just like the rest of us today. :)

Mama-Bug said...

Love it! I never can seem to get one of these guys to be still long enough to take his photo.

Debbie said...

it's a crow...and it's beautiful, you did that!!!!

Farm Girl said...

Your pictures today are just lovely, you have so many wild flowers in Texas! I like your crow picture. That is such a nice close up.

Sweet bird, so neat and elegant. You did a great job on the picture, Ms. T. As always, right?
Love ya!

Clint said...

Ever notice how so many of these crows have permanently ruffled feathers on one wing or the other? I don't know if that is from fights or what. We've got 'em around here and can identify most of them by where their ruffles are.

I also like to watch them walk around our front yard. they are quite ungainly when it comes to walking.

Deb said...

the wind is blowing so hard up here in big D..it's a wonder the birds have any feathers left...

Bob Bushell said...

Yes, it the crow feathers.

Lois Evensen said...

It looks pretty windy. :) Nice image.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

My favorite bird for they are one of the most intelligent of the animal kingdom. Yet I have never taken the time to photograph one. Now having seen your photo I may just do that.

SquirrelQueen said...

Great shot of Mr Crow and his beautiful feathers!

The Indian Paintbrush in your post below is absolutely gorgeous, I am amazed at all the different shades and colors.

Hilda R.B said...

Great image! So close up. Have a nice weekend to you!

Robin said...

Theresa, nicer shot! We often overlook these very intelligent birds

Home In The Hollow said...

It's windy here as well...tell your friend to get up in the trees where he belongs with his friends. Did you ever notice they don't fly alone?...:)JP

Sharon said...

We have many crows here - especially when it's getting close to time to get the pecans! They are pretty, aren't they?

Country Mouse Studio said...

was it the wind or were they ruffled? :O)

don said...

A fine close up of this ruffled feathers crow! Nice one. We have them around here and I hear them "raising cane" cawing in the morning sometimes! :-)

Sérgio Pontes said...

I love crows, this one is very nice

LauraX said...

wow...beautiful pattern!

Woody said...

I can hear it 'cawing' at me :-)

Manzanita said...

You must be the bird whisperer to get all those great shots.

Joe said...

I don't know if the crow is going to like you posting it's pic with it's hair messed up. I think most like that sleek look :).

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Great shots of flowers in the previous post and this crow too--I know they're a bit misunderstood and beautiful in their own way! :-)

Texan said...

Just love the crows! Don't know why just do.

Farmchick said...

I also love crows and don't know why!! I do love the deep, dark, blackness in their feathers.

Evelyn S. said...

It's interesting how many crows have moved into our little town in the past several years. I never remember seeing them like this before. They are definitely a most interesting bird...the way they look and they way they sound. This is a great image you've captured.

Eyeliquor said...

This can not be your only shot ??

Leovi said...

Excellent crisp shot.

Millie said...

That reminds me of how our nasty winds here are ruffling Naughty Rooster Boy's feathers.

Randy said...

I love crows and ravens. They are so amazing to watch.

Nancy said...

I'm not sure I've ever seen a crow or raven here. But I did have three blackbirds playing in the kiddie pool yesterday. Does that count? ;)

Amazing shot!

Samantha said...

Love crows! Brilliant birds and so fun to watch.

Allison said...

Blackbird pie. :)

Kerri said...

Sandra said...

It's black, and yet when you look closely there are shades and patterns, beautiful!
Our crows are lighter colored, more off-black and charcoal.

Linda said...

Looks as though he is posing for this shot....thanks for sharing.

Buttons said...

Excellent I don't know how you catch them so well. B

Thanks for linking up, T. I very much appreciate it! :)

Great shot, I love how his feathers are slightly ruffled.

Good capture of the wind in the feathers.

gowestferalwoman said...

Do you feed them the left overs too?

And you certainly captured this guys personality!

Trisha said...

What a pose! Nice shot :) Those things flock our scare crow every day! (not very scary I guess!)

I love how you can see the detail in the feathers!
