THE HOODED CROW SEEN IN NORWAY

When on holiday in Europe last summer we came across this Hooded Crow on one of our site-seeing trips.  I had never seen one before.  You can find out more about him if you go to this link.

















I am including the following memes, and will add my link as they open: Misty's Camera Critters, Eileen's Saturday Critters, Anni's Bird D'Pot,  Michelle's Nature Notes,  and Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesdaywith thanks to each for hosting these very enjoyable memes.  Please click on the the light blue links to visit other participants.

  2. Oh my goodness, these pictures are awesome! Especially of his face!! I know there is a lot of intelligence behind those beady eyes! We have none around here, so I love looking at these. Oh OH, looks like he has spotted you in the last picture!!! Ha ha, wonderful...

  3. Gorgeous. I saw one in Scotland and thought it was a crow with albino tendencies at first! x

  4. Odd, I am the first commenter today... I like crows..the most intelligent of all the birds, and funny too until the catch a baby bird in midair and haul it off to their nest for lunch, as I saw one do.

  5. In England they used to be known as the Royston Crow, from the town just three miles from my house. The open chalk downland there was once its stronghold in this part of Britain. Sadly they are there no more, though our local newspaper is still called The Royston Crow.

  15. Nice pictures - this is a type of bird I have not seen in a while. We used to have them all around the Marine Station I worked on (many years ago) in Eire.

  17. Even though he's more colourful than the North American variety, there's a strong family resemblance. :)
