Nature Through My Lens


Pumpkin Pie, Not


In the remains of a farmers Pumpkin field the crows found a feast. They are either eating the broken Pumpkin pieces or the grubs and bugs attracted by the Pumpkin. Hard to tell which.

Stand Proud


Here’s a handsome fellow, a Northwestern Crow (Corvus caurinus). It seems that word has got out that there is a good place to get your photo taken. More and more seem to be coming to the fence. This chap is a typical Corvid, interested in where his next meal is coming from! There’s a Suet feeder just off to the left and this guy will take the whole lot if it can get away with it!

Into the Unknown


This handsome Northwestern Crow, (Corvus caurinus) atop a tall hedge of Cedars seems to be staring off into the great unknown.

Preparing Lunch


Here’s a Northwestern Crow.  It likes to take the food it has found and dunk it in the neighbours rain gutter.  It leaves it there until it is soft enough to eat.  Clever Bird!  Depending on what it is will determine how long it’s left in the water!  Clever Bird!

Calling, Calling


A Common Crow high in a tree, calling and calling!

Eyes on Me


Got out of the car at the store and notice this guy keeping a close eye on me.

Sky High


A flock of crows heads to it’s night time roost. Crows form large communal roosts at night where thousands of individuals gather in trees. Around here at sundown they can be seen like this flying to their roost site. This is a steady flow of crows lasting over a half hour or more.

On Guard


An American Crow.  One guard because there was a hawk in the area and this guy and it’s buddies were harassing it.

This Crow really wanted it’s picture taken. It let me walk quite close and then gave me a nice profile. Just prior to that, it was looking right at me, cawing, as if telling me to take the shot!
