House Crow (Corvus splendens) - best viewed large
A crow is a crow, unitl you observe it closely. After that its a pretty amazing bird. A mix of beauty and intelligence (only a blind man would say that), but they are really intelligent and take great care of their young ones. I have see them fearlessly take on kites many times larger than themselves to protect their young. My respect for these amazing birds has gone up a few notches . . . I have added the whole series under this as an individual pic could not do justice to these wonderful birds . . .
