Between big birds and the squirrels needing a swimming pool, I think you need a bigger birdbath:@)

A Quiet Corner said...

Have you ever noticed how Crows travel in threes or is that my imagination? I've had Crows around the Hollow lately up in the field and there always three....:)JP

bailey-road.com said...

Great capture! The crows around here won't come out of the treetops.

Ellie said...

That bird bath looks a bit overloaded with those 3 crows.
Love the title to this post. One of the things I struggle with is naming posts.

trav4adventures said...

Oh, aren't they funny? I love watching ravens (we have ravens here in So. Calif)...there are a pair of them up at the horse ranch and they are hilarious!

Samantha said...

You know I immediately smiled at this shot..love those crows!

Snappy Di said...

Who says 'the family that bathes together, stays together'? Hee hee. Cute pic!

Felicity said...

Crows aren't usually a favourite of mine {I've lived on sheep properties - I won't say more} but you've managed to make this trio look quite majestic.

Pop by tomorrow, I've created a post with you in mind.

And that's a tub-full!

Mariette said...

Have a great Sunday yourself and love to you,

Mariette

Sandra said...

I am now awarding you "Best Bed & Breakfast Award" for your bird bath, the only one i know of that has so many visitors and so many different colors and races LOL... think dogs, squirrels, horses, birds and all things FOWL.

This is a beautiful picture.I find crows so hard to photograph,not only do they rarely allow one to get within range,but because of the all black they don't photograph easily.This is perfect,even catching the glint in the eye.

Karen said...

How do you manage such terrific birdbath shots! ... patience, I would imagine. Which I lack.

Stickhorsecowgirls said...

I love this picture. V and I have a "thing" for crows, both of us. Stickhorse Cowgirl C

Lynne said...

I "happened" on you from On My From Porch In The Mountains and when I caught the word Wis,
I signed up to follow you.
I was born in Wis . . .

You had me at "the birds" for I too delight in the birds who visit our feeders.

I was "over the moon" reading your prose.

Today is a really, good day.

I am happy to meet you!
love
lynne

Louise said...

You know, I also have three crows around here. So, maybe there is something in what "A Quiet Corner" says. And, you rarely to never see them in my pictures, because they're so skittish. So, I particularly appreciate your wonderful shot of these three characters. It must have taken tremendous patience (or a bit of luck.)

Roan said...

I think a larger tub is in order. Cool shot!

holdingmoments said...

They look a right motley crew lol

Kerri said...

Super catch!

Sharon said...

They do make that bird bath look awfully small! :-)

Clint said...

OK, you've had your cold spell and downpour for the year---no more complainin'! :)

Feral Female said...

Great image!

Bruce Clark said...

Three large crows and one small birdbath....something is going to have to give :)

Woody said...

It seems something has their collective attention. I'd guess Baron looking to expand his bone collection.

Candy C. said...

We have a pair of ravens that have been living at the barn for the past couple of years. This year, they have been joined by about five of their friends! I have been meaning to post some pictures on my blog because I thought you would enjoy them! :)

Melodie said...

Larry, Curly and Moe perhaps...

Millie said...

It doesn't look very big with those birds on it. I guess they need a drink too.

Susan said...

A great shot. They look quite imposing.

Jill said...

What a great shot! The crows around here tend to wreck havoc but you're look absolutely charming in the tub.

Birdman said...

Big-mouthed birds!

Montanagirl said...

Terrific capture! Either they're really huge, or that birdbath is pretty small!! LOL

Mom of M&Ms said...

You run such an equal opportunity ranch.. those crows were the same ones hanging at my pool last week, I swear...

dr momi said...

What are they looking at?.....dogs? lol!

Texan said...

Don't you love just love them. What is it about them. They are not nearly as colorful as lot of other birds but gotta love them.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I know they are grateful for the water!!!

Kjell T. Evensen said...

Those guys look serious! Great image.

Debbie said...

you....making crows look beautiful. i wonder what they are looking so intently at.

i love the shine on the one in front and i adore seeing them in flight!!!

i love the title, you always have the best titles. that show's off your creative side!!!

Lois Evensen said...

At least they are sharing, not chasing each other away. I'll bet they would love to find bigger "digs."

Jan n Jer said...

Wow...they look like a staute!

Κωστής Τζαγκαράκης said...

I m wondering why they have that angry look.
Are you sure they did not mind you photographing them..?

Rose said...

They are probably arguing over who goes first!

Deb said...

love it...

georgettesullins said...

Now that is quite a congregation waiting to be baptized.

Susan said...

I thought the bird bath was bigger, but they make it look small. Look at how blue-black they are. Love this photo. Beautiful as always.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Crows frequent our yard and even will pick around beneath the feeders. Yet if we even think about getting close to the glass door or windows, they will be the first to skee-daddle. The other birds will hang around longer.

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Ha ha! Cute!

don said...

This is such a fine capture of the subtle coloring of these crows. We think of them as just black (or at least I do) but this shows quite a difference in color more toward purple. Very nice image.

bon bon said...

do our butts makes this bird bath look small?

yes. yes, they do.

ellen abbott said...

Yeah, they like to monopolize my birdbath too.

Pricilla said...

Just shows how big they are

Sylvia K said...

Ah, yes! We have a roof full of them right now!!

Andrew said...

Haha I can hear them from here..."where did that knackered looking squirrel go?"
A lovely capture.

Randy said...

Nice shot. Every time I try to shoot the Ravens around town they fly off. Seems like these three enjoyed posing for you.

Martha Z said...

Your feeders and bird bath do provide you with a never ending supply of great photos. I'm sure with the drought the birds are very appreciative.
I enjoyed your tale of the gelding getting into the feeders. It reminds me of the bears around our cabin. They, too, enjoy the birdseed.

eileeninmd said...

Great capture! I see them sometimes in my yard, it is nice that here they spook easily.

Unknown Mami said...

They bring to mind the 3 witches in the Scottish play by Shakespeare.

Robin said...

T, something certainly has their attention!
Nice shot.

Kathy said...

They seem to have spotted something of interest off in the distance.

Negerigeletschtempoit said...

I love the picture! The expression on their faces! And the one on the back that seems to be stretching up to be able to see something - what an adorable group!
Love ya!

Country Mouse Studio said...

they look so young and awkward

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Theresa, First of all let me say that I loved your Bunting photos.. That is one gorgeous bird...

This photo is great also... Our crows don't anywhere near the bird bath or feeders... I hear them make alot of noise--but they don't come very close.
Hugs,
Betsy

Angela said...

They are just looking for some water! They are thirsty too! Poor animals with all this drought going on.

Barb said...

Three crows together - great capture!

Nova said...

Great capture

Have a beautiful start in the new week and greetings from my island

barbara l. hale said...

Oh, I just love them. They are my favorite birds. I could watch them for a long time...amazing creatures that they are. This is a terrific shot. Usually when I try to get one, they just laugh at me and go somewhere else.

NicoleB said...

Is that where the word 'crowded' comes from? :-)

Allison said...

Tell 'em they're a little big for that lil' newborn tub!

pattisjarrett said...

I doubt those three would fit in it at one time.

heyBJK said...

Hey! It's like we got Vinnie, Joey, and Frankie over here. They're gonna get a drink and then head out for a pizza pie. Capiche?

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

I'm not sure if their big asses can even fit in the tub :O

Paula said...

Hmmm... two's company, but three....
