Eurasian Jackdaw
Corvus monedula

Generally wary of people in the forest or countryside, western jackdaws are much tamer in urban areas. Like magpies, they are known to pick up shiny objects such as jewellery to hoard in nests.

Highly gregarious, western jackdaws are generally seen in flocks of varying sizes, though males and females pair-bond for life and pairs stay together within flocks. Flocks increase in size in autumn and birds congregate at dusk for communal roosting, with up to several thousand individuals gathering at one site.

Hi Manyee,a very good capture of this jackdaw despite the difficult light on the black plumage and the location too,interesting specie in a colorful background made by the green grass and the dead leafes.Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Manyee,
I have a similar camera and it gives amazing results. Beautiful detail on the plumage and the eye is a strong point of interest that captures one's attention. Pity you do not show the focal length and shutter speed. Very well done.

Beak portion clearly oof.not good details on feather.not a good quality picture.but unfortunetly a few member can see much in it.What i can say it? Back slapping?or oiling?
