Thirsty Crows

It is really getting hot here in North-central Florida!  These Common Crows really know how to cool off and enjoy a refreshing drink.  Fortunately my neighbor has a nice, shaded, bird bath that is full of water.  It is the same spot where I had previously photographed a bunch of American Robins bathing and splashing.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. It looks like full sun. Tough to get details in black birds. Nice silouettes.

    • Hi Sherry, I seldom get really nice photographs of crows. I am a very very amateur photographer in spite of doing the hobby for about five and a half years now. I do read a bit about photography and hope to take a workshop or two in coming years. Thanks for your comments. I appreciate them. Have a fantastic weekend!

  2. I am glad they have some water on those hot days. The splish-splashing bath shots or drinkging are fun. Happy Friday, have a great weekend!

  3. beautiful shots of these beautiful birds!

    • Hi Theresa, Many thanks! I like crows. I like how social and protective they are. They are doing their best to keep the two hawks from being around as much here. Have a great weekend!

  4. Interesting to know that crows will come to a bird bath. They won’t do that here, although there is one who flies a daily recon run through the area just below the house to see if I threw out anything he might eat.

    • Hi Montucky, I just believe the crows around here are so used to people that they are almost domestic. No, not like pets, just not as afraid as many birds in other areas are. Most people here move fairly slowly and are pretty considerate and quiet. Crows are quite bright intellectually. Glad you have a crow that is a bright one and knows the score. By the way, I saw 3 hawks together in one of the almost empty rainfall retention pond basins. I have never seen that many in one spot. Have a great weekend!

    Crows rarely land on our property, but we were treated to seeing a young crow at a rehab place recently. He was able to feed himself, but seemed to prefer being fed. It was kind of cute as he didn’t have his full crow voice yet.
