An American Crow in Washington

Wherever we go, I am always on the lookout
for beautiful birds.


Or at least a bird who will sit still
and let me take his picture...


As you can see...I'm not too fussy!!


It was a gloomy day but I still enjoyed capturing these shots,
even if it was only an American Crow!!

Please stop by to see all the amazing birds from around the world!!

  1. They can be very entertaining to watch. If they weren't so common we would think them quite handsome with their shinny black bodies.

  27. The black on gray is stunning. Love the one with his wings spread (though I would have been scared if I had been actually there behind the camera!)

  28. I'd say I love all birds and they're all beautiful, but I confess the pesky Grackle has been getting on my last nerve this spring. The darn things gobble up all my bird seed so fast! Grrrr... Great shots, Deb!

  29. Great shots of the crow, Debbie! I've found them to be rather wary and usually have to use a long lens. Nice job!
