A Crow

The crow could be Britain’s least favourite bird. Its habits and behaviour are probably no worse than other members of the corvidae family who do not attract so much opprobrium. Perhaps it is the very uniform blackness of the bird which leads to the bad reputation. Folks might say they don’t have the redeeming feature of being colourful or pretty.

The other day I joked to my wife that we had a cross between a magpie and a crow on the back lawn. Here it is.


Now this is a crow with some white feathers. It certainly makes it a distinctive bird. I quite hope it sticks around.

By the way, birds like this are not particularly uncommon.
