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.

Crows have been here on my street a lot lately. I took these photographs on May 2, 2015. Please click on the thumbnail image to see a slightly larger version of that picture. Enjoy!
This very small flock of Common Crows was at the rainfall retention basin across the street from my home when there was still about a foot of water in the basin. This rainfall retention basin goes from wet to dry rather quickly, so there was about six of the birds that took advantage of all that water, and bathed.

Crows were seen at the larger rainfall retention basin pond here in the development where I live on Oct. 23, 2014. The Crows were hunting for tadpoles, and tasty insects. They were there at the pond along with the Killdeer and Lesser Yellowlegs. I always enjoy watching Crows. Crows are amazing and quite smart!

All this Turkey Vulture wanted to do was get a quick drink out of the rainfall pond across the street here. No, the small group of about five crows would not have it. The crows ganged up on the poor vulture and off all flew. It sounded like the battle that happens when the crows chase the neighborhood Red-shouldered Hawk! Lots of noise and commotion. In the end, the carrion- eating vulture was the loser and has left the area – for how long, we won’t know. I took these pictures on Sept. 28, 2014.

These Common Crows are residents of my neighborhood. I took these pictures on Sept. 15, 2014 in my yard. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
These Common Crows were photographed in the last week here at the local park and along the street where I live. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
