American Crow Closeup

American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) on the island in Constitution Gardens Lake, in Washington, DC. He let me get pretty close, as you can see. I crouched down near him (or her?) for a few minutes, spoke in calm tones, and we had a nice inter-species understanding there for a little while. Look how close Phil was able to get to one of the crows here.
