  5. Hi Bob!
    Que imagens tão maravilhosas!
    Penas pretas, elegancia e glamour. Mas não é essa ave qu "fala" demais?
    Aqui chama-se Gralha a uma pessoa que fala emais. Por isso saio devagarinho...:)

  11. You have to admit Bob these are one smart bird, in more ways than one. I had one as a pet once and boy was it cleaver, I could right a book about the tricks it got up to.
    All the best Gordon.

  22. Stunning images! I always find the eye of a Jackdaw stunning, but until these images I never noticed the sheen on the wing (30+ years of birding and there is always something new to learn even with common birds)
