We might have gray skies but I see buds on the trees and lots of diffrent birds recently. Not sure what this is -- maybe a crow? I guessed right. The major consensus is a crow as it is too small for a raven.

Spring is just around the corner. Leaves are sprouting in our area too.

Looks crow-like to me. Good contrast with the background. Hard to get good "sky' pictures here isn't it, all so pale and gray.

Sure looks like a crow or a raven to me. Great pics. I'm jealous of the budding branches!

Autumn said...

For some reason the first photo isn't showing up for me, but the others are really nice. I don't know what kind of birds those are either but they made a nice shot for the photos.

If grey is all you are getting you are at least putting it to good use as a background. I would say that is a crow posing for his fame on Skywatch..

Thank you for linking

The first photo is icon for SWF, , , blogger isn't cooperating. The other three I loaded through Image Shack. It took me 6 hours to finally get this post up. I am not going to worry too much about the skywatch icon this time.

Nice pictures. You'll have to take some photos of the same trees once the leaves come out!

RuneE said...

I cannot help you with the species - I'll just say that they were nicely caught!

Angie said...

Hi,
Great pictures.The crow or the rook really stands out against the branches.

quintarantino said...

Great photos and I think it's a crow, but not pretty sure.

SandyCarlson said...

That's a lovely little bird. Well done, Paulie.

Sharon said...

Hi Paulie! I love the bird pictures, sitting on the budding trees! I can't wait for spring to actually get here. The first picture wouldn't come up for me. I'll come back later to see it.

I think it's a raven too, crows are smaller but either way, great capture. The ones around here just never stay put long enough for me to take pictures.

Deslilas said...

Crows are very eagger sky watchers I agree.

Daniel J Santos said...

Can't tell what birds are those but those are wonderful shots. I especially like the first shot - quite simple, great composition.

I love your pictures of the birds:)

A raven? Yes I think so too.
Good shot.

Misty Dawn said...

I think it's a crow, and you did a great job at capturing it in the photos!

Yolanda said...

I love all the birds around right now. I know that the sun will return soon.

Carla said...

Looks like a crow to me. And you can sure see those buds busting out on the trees. Good shots!

Just Plain Sweet said...

I'd guess crow also. We were quite gray today with lots of rain and thunderstorms - looks great with the bird and branches.

Thanks for your nice comments on my blog. I'd love to see the bulletin board at your church when you get it up.
