Have a great weekend,

Looks like he had something to say Jane. Looks really overcast that day, but you managed to get great plumage details. Good work my friend.

Crows are difficult to photograph I find,but you have managed a very good exposure showing plumage detail and definition.
Good pose captured,you have some nice catch light in the eye as well.

Wonderful shot of this Crow calling out to friends. Very neat and sharp image with beautiful lighting. Fine exposure handling and the blue sky works well here. Excellent DOF, POV and composition.

a nice picture of a crow I never have heard about.
On my monitor it's a wee bit to dark and I downloaded and
checked the levels in photoshop and you can give it some more light.
It's well composed with good sharpness and nice POV.
The crow standout well against the sky.
Well done, mf.
Have a nice weekend.

I have never seen this specie before! It looks a lot like our crows but it seems indeed to be smaller. You captured nice details on it dark plumage with good composition and pose. I have seen a documentary once which evaluated the level of intelligence among bird species and crows were on the top. This study shows that they also can use kind of tools to feed themselves. Which specie do you think was at the bottom of this scale? Doves... :) Thanks,

Wonderful exposure - I have trouble with blackbirds - always seems the black just melts together into one glob. You did a fantastic job here!
Great pose too...like there's a story behind the scene. Good stuff!!

I've never seen a Fish Crow on TN before so it very well might be the first! If so then CONGRATULATIONS! :-))
In fact I've never even heard of a Fish Crow so thanks for posting this :-)
Very good pose.

Immediately makes me think of the Hitchcock classic, "The Birds".
The pose combined with the dark mood works well IMO..
He's actually calling out to his flock, organizing the next attack ;-}}
