This morning we had about 80 Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) in the Corn stubble field across the road from us. This is part of that group. The forground vegetation is Blackberry bushes. This is the only thing separating the geese from our street. Mind you it is about 7 feet high! A bunch of Crows were also in on the feast.
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.
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!

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!

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

I have great difficulty identifying Gulls, but I think this is an immature Herring Gull. It was having a chase round with the Crow. Both were behind a Hot Dog stand, hoping for a handout!
