How about a corvid thread?couple more tonight

Here's a few shots from Sunday

I was glad to see Mr Rook doing a grand job of cleaning up the mess left by spadgers earlier.

Isn't he a handsome chap.

A few of his cousins just wonder if they can help

She made it safely I wonder if I can

I'm watching you carefully

Phew...made it.

Got rid of those pesky jackdaws and now you can see my lovely plumage

Shame that person with the camera left out my tail!!

Just showing that I'm good at sharing really.

Hope you like them

    What a timely thread!  Here follow some great reasons to have your camera in the car when you go supermarket shopping:

    Our herring gulls are red listed birds.  Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

  • In reply to Clare:

    Good idea for a thread, Gaynor. Corvids are very underrated and often persecuted bird but I like them. Nice photos from everyone.

    I'll throw in a few different ones.

    Very distinctive tail so no prizes.

    How about these. They are corvids but not as you may know them.

  • A couple of Magpie pics

    Mayday! … I'm going down! … Mayday!

    A Magpie, crashing into water? No, couldn't be. Are you sure it wasn't a Tufted Duck.

    Oh, alright. It's just that bath-time's such fun!

    It really brings out the colours, don't you think?

    That's the second Magpie I've seen in that pool on consecutive visits.

    Fantastic photo captures Nigel,  the plumage of the magpie is so stunning with the range of blue/green colours along side the black and white.     I love the corvids.

    Love those bathtime photos Nigel, with a handy rock to preen on afterwards.     Saw and heard two ravens today but they flew away when they saw me heading their way, of course no camera with me.

  • This was taken at Stonehenge back in May, I'd never thought of them as being so tame
