Hello:):) Valley Sluzewiecka + Canon + Jupiter:)

The Jackdaw (Corvus monedula) is one of the smallest species (34-39 cm in length) in the genus of crows and ravens. Most of the plumage is black or greyish black except for the cheeks, nape and neck which are light grey to greyish silver. The iris is greyish white or silvery white, the only member of the genus outside of the Australasian region to have this feature. The bird is sociable, moving around in pairs (male and female) or in larger groups, though the pairs of birds stay together within the flocks.
A very large area stretching from North West Africa through virtually all of Europe, Iran, North West India and Siberia. Inhabits wooded steppes, woodland, cultivated land, pasture, coastal cliffs and villages and towns.
