I finally got some photos of a couple of hooded crows today. It’s been really difficult, I see them in the paddock next to our apartment stomping around but it’s as if they have a sixth sense – as soon as I focus on them through the bars of my kitchen, the little sods fly away. This time my husband called me out from my study and I focused from the kitchen so as not to disturb them as they fly off at the slightest sound or movement.
There were three but one flew off before I could focus, so I got the remaining two sitting on the tree out front of our garden – the dark one is the parent and paler one is the fledgling (the parents have reared three young ones). On the lower left you can see the Mediterranean. So here are three photos:
1) Distance shot showing Mediterranean
2) Close up of the two hooded crows
3) One of the crows flying away.
