Blue Sky Crow

Crow in Tree

I believe this is a crow and now a raven despite its large size. The two are hard to tell apart and I wonder if they bother. This looks to have the rounded tail and straight beak of the crow.

Sometimes we see huge ravens with wingspans over six feet. It is amazing they can lift off the ground. When they do flap by it is with a spooky low thrumming sound.

    Their noises are pretty good indicators, I think. Ravens seem to have a much more broad range of sounds that can be made. Both are pretty amazing birds though.

    Where there is a Raven…

    Now if it's a crow?

    Spring is sprung, the grass is rissed, I wonder where the flowers is. The boids are on the wing, now ain't that absoid, I always thought the wings was on the boids!

    Walter, I'm sure crows and ravens can tell the difference! Crows around here harass ravens just like other birds of prey, though they mob them less fanatically.
    I enjoy your blog very much and wish I had the time and energy to copy some of your ideas. However, have to build the house first! :D

  4. I named my first child and only daughter Raven. She is beautiful and slightly spooky too :)

    It's beautiful here in Montana, Walter. We might reach 80 today!!! We have mostly ravens here. You can tell them apart in flight, of course, but close up the raven has a longer, larger beak, and their calls are much different, deeper, etc. I think you made the right choice, crow. Thanks for sharing a great picture of it!!!!!
