A line of crows

There are an enormous amount of crows around the farm next door, but they don’t appear to put off the smaller birds from visiting our garden. Of course photographing those is rather more challenging.


Sometimes living here is a bit like being in a Hitchcock movie…

  1. Nice layers and silhouettes.

      Rather different to the view of house roofs! Though they did make rather nice layers and silhouettes πŸ™‚

    Sadly our crows have chased all our little birds away.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, I read that. Hope they don’t do the same here.

      1. pommepal says:

        I hope so too Jude. I miss all our colourful parrots

      Yes, you don’t want to park your car under here.

  4. Great shot, Jude. πŸ™‚ Hope your terrifying, villainous crows stay up there on the line.

      Well they don’t come into the garden but every now and then they take off in a hurry – we think it is when a bird of prey is around. Then the sky really does look like the Hitchcock movie!

  5. I have two HUGE crows, at least I think they are crows, or are they ravens, I will have to look that up, that come to my lawn every morning. I must try to get a photo of them. If it is like trying to get the neighborhood cat picture it may be awhile! That cute cat always scoots when it sees my camera!

      Ravens are very big!

    I expect you’ll have a few buzzards to take charge.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Indeed. And kestrels. But that one got attacked by a magpie. Not sure if that is usual behaviour.

  7. It makes me wonder what they are waiting for…

    1. Heyjude says:

      They remind me of musical notes!

      1. Ah, maybe they are just waiting for the conductor to come along…

    There are lots around here, circling the huge pig farms. The local farmers blast a few of them with shotguns occasionally, but it never seems to reduce their numbers.
    A suitably sinister shot, Jude.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

  9. That was the creepiest movie ever! I just can’t do birds close up. But I do like your photo.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Apparently it is a good idea to be friends with them πŸ˜‰

      1. I can be friendly, just from a distance!

        1. Heyjude says:

          I shall just smile at them.

    Lol…love The Birds πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      Seagulls today, but then it is very windy and cold!

      1. Sherri says:

        Same here…misleading when the sun comes out and then go outside to a chilly wind!

        1. Heyjude says:

          A lazy wind as my mother would have said. One which goes right through you instead of around πŸ˜‰

    Gah! The Birds was one of the scariest movies I ever saw as a kid! It looks like a scene right out of that movie!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Especially when they get disturbed and rise up en masse!

I like a like, but I love a chat
