  • Little Raven ?

    I think this is a Little Raven over being a Crow but I am not fuss to what it really is as I just class them all as Crows anyway.
    Taken as we 9Me and the wife) walked back to the car and this started to play hide\n/seek with as as we got closer.

      Thanks for that but I am happy just to go with an overall name of Crow or Raven with these. I know this isn't really the done thing but I do get a lot lazy with details and I am happy with just an overall term for them.

    Very good work Ralph. Nice and close and sharp to show off all the fine details.

      To me these carry on a lot like the Galah or Corella's as they still enjoy life and to me this is the story behind these shots.
      As this was having by going behind the branch to popping out on the other side or the same side.
      I enjoyed taking these shots so much on the day.

      I think the eyes were what got me quite a lot with this one who was a cheeky little bugger.

    Nice closeup of the face. Quite a lot of personality there. Great shots.

      In all honesty I had a great time taking this ones photo's and I do feel this one knew just what it was doing as well.
      Thanks for your comments and for looking as well.

    Very nice Ralph, I may be alone but I love all the Corvid family, always inquisitive.

      I am with ya on that as well. I wanted to get a good portrait shot of one and it took me over 2 weeks to find one that would sit longer enough to get what I wanted. And I have watched a few youtube things on just how smart they really as as in needing more than one stone to life the door and stuff like that. The work things out on their own. Then watch one where it took a plastic lid to the top of a snow covered roof and it hopped on the lid and slid down to the gutter that done it all over again. The really do know what life is about far more then many other birds. So these are a favourite of mine on all these counts.

      Thanks for that and I am glad you got that same feel for these shots as I did when I took the shots.
