Just common Crows

I have found it extremely difficult to photograph my crows. They are so wary and skittish. Now we placed our birdbath where I can see it from inside the house and finally captured these beautiful birds! They come late every afternoon for a drink and often to wet some small bit of food they have.

3. An Uncommon photograph of common Crows

Great photo! Captivating. What camera and lens did you use?

6. Normally

I would have used a D750, but had set that camera up for bracketing in an attempt to capture the ISS, so for this I used my Df. As for lens, I'm all about the long reach, this is a Nikkor 200-500 with TC20 2X. For small birds I would be at 1000mm, but these guys are big and this was shot at ~400mm

8. I love crows. Used to see the parents and older siblings watch over baby crows.

Wonderful thing to see. Also was sitting in the yard once and a crow was making a purring sound in a tree nearby.

9. First off, crows do not think of themselves as common.

Second, lovely picture.

Iíll love the winter plumage of Starlings. When the light hits them, they become beautiful.

13. I too love crows

And have a pair nesting nearby who bring their young down for a feed. They call me first!

They really get a bad rap from horror stories and movies but in reality they are shy, intelligent birds. Our Aussie native wattle birds and noisy miners give them a really hard time.

Great pic. Thank you for posting.
