Skywatch Friday - Season 4 Episode 37

I thought these might be a change of pace for my SWF entry today. These crows were hanging around while I was waiting at a traffic-light the other day.






Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy, Louise and Sylvia for hosting SkyWatch Friday.

Great captures - and you've got seven in your final photograph - so what secret is there never to be told? ;-)

Hi Denise. I don't see crows as much as I used to. In California I used to see and hear them by the dozens everyday now I only see the odd one or two every now and then. So it's nice to see them. Very nice post.

I haven't seen much crows around here. But I don't mind, I'm quite spooked when they are around.

Sunny said...

I think crows make such wonderful subjects for pictures, and you have some really great captures.
We get a lot of crows in the corn fields around here but they are not always easy to photograph.

I'm fond of these birds myself. And this photo collection really suits them--especially that last *noisy* line up on the wire.
Nicely done!

Gads! Look at all those crows. Funny you should post pictures of crows today. I was talking with Bob on the telephone, at lunch time. I was standing outside on our front porch. I looked up, and there were two BIG crows standing on top of a telephone pole. I didn't run for the camera. I wouldn't have had time to get it anyway. The one crow chased off the other crow. The crow left standing flew away a moment later.

Wonder how many crows there are in this country, Denise???? We all have them ---in GOBS... ha

Great sky pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

Crows can be kind of scary but yours are fun.

I am glad the traffic light made you hang around. These are super shots of the crows and blue sky overhead.

I like your bird shots Denise!! They look like our Mynas over here! Fact I have three you may recall? Pretty smart too like the crows. The skies are a fabulous blue too! Nothing like Spring..I'm sure the feel it too!
Happy Skywatch!!

Tabib said...

Not easy to photograph the black subject (bird) against the bright background. You have done it well, especially in the third pic.

Kind of reminds me of a Hitchcock flick. I love grows!

Regina said...

Wow amazing skies.
They were lining up and posing on the last photo!

Great captures.

Enjoy the weekend dear one.

diane said...

We have them too. aren't they noisy but very clever birds. You got some good shots. The last one looks like musical notation.

Shelle said...

wow you sure managed some great shots! you must have had a nice piece of steak in your hand...(do they eat meat?) my Mum used to feed the kookuburras in our backyard.

CambridgeLady said...

Well captured. They are very striking birds.

Have a great weekend!

walk2write said...

That must have some long stoplight! I don't think I could have taken so many great pics in such a brief amount of time. Good job!

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

Quite a gathering there - a bit of a reminder of Hitchcock's "Birds".

There is an award waiting for you at my blog Denise - if you would like to accept it. A x

Marvelous captures of these crows against your BLUE skies. I've been watching crows in my area gather twigs for nesting ... fascinating!
Hugs and blessings,

SquirrelQueen said...

Really cool captures of the crows, they make a great SkyWatch series.

bettyl said...

What a cool shot of 'ordinary' (or used to be, anyway) birds! Isn't it great that we can find awesome captures simply by looking around us!

Kcalpesh said...

Flying, relaxing, about to take off, oh, so many poses of crows.. although not considered among the beautiful and cute looking birds, your captures do portray a noticeable image for the crow community :-)
