Gray crow

Gray crow is a Eurasian bird of the crow family that lives in northern, eastern and south-eastern Europe, western Asia and the Nile Delta in Africa. Like the rest of the family, the gray crow is an opportunist who often exploits the human presence to nest and search for food, which is often found in or near settlements. It is easily recognizable by its two-tone, black and gray feathers throughout the body. The tail, dandruff, head and throat are brilliantly black, and the black coloration of the throat continues to the breast, where it ends with an uneven edge. The torso is ash gray with slightly darker lines that give it a slightly striped appearance. It measures 84 cm to 1 meter across and is 44 to 51 cm long. He is an omnivorous vulture, using his high intelligence in his search for food. It picks nuts, shells or crabs from the ground and lowers them from a high altitude onto a hard surface to break. In cities, we often find her opening trash bags and the like. In addition, he also steals eggs and kittens of other birds, e.g. seagulls and cormorants. I took this picture in the middle of town as she was browsing the garbage cans.

    • Thanks for watching and kind comment, dear Dawn….you have gray and completely black crows … they are really smart … i watched her up close as she was eating garbage out of the trash downtown
       

  1. They are regular guests in my backyard.
    Very smart birds. They take the walnut fruit in height and drop it into the street. So they break it and come to feed.
    It was a case last spring when he was chasing my dog around the yard.
    Maybe they were young. It was interesting.
