[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Corvus monedula
A small black crow with a grey neck and pale eyes. It is sociable and usually seen in pairs or larger groups. It is quite and acrobatic flier and flocks will often chase and tumble together in flight. On the ground it both walks and hops

This little chap was hopping along infront of me whilst I was taking pictures of goslings on the pond. He wasn't shy, he stopped, watched what I was doing and then decided he would like to pose! It's been a while since I've seen a Jackdaw bouncing around my local area. Usual suspects around here are crows or magpies, but he was certainly the cheekiest bird I've seen in a while!

Hola Daniel.Sinestro,pero una bonita imagen.Supongo que va caminando.Textura del plumaje muy real.Gracias.Saludos.

Hello Daniel! So, this is a Jackdaw. Have seen the species mentioned in so many books, so it is interesting to finally see one. Very good capture, made me laugh to see your notes saying it hops and bounces around. Great POV, and good detail! Well done! TFS! Linda
